DEEPENING JEWISH ENGAGEMENT

We believe all Jews should have access to a meaningful Jewish life.

We know people choose different paths on today’s contemporary Jewish journey and we need to explore the many ways to connect to Jewish moments. That’s why we promote Jewish identity, reimagine cornerstones like summer camps and Jewish day schools, and seed cutting-edge programs — all to help people lead a meaningful Jewish life.


The Facts:

  • 53% of Jews under 30 in the U.S. identify as Jewish on the basis of ancestry, ethnicity, or culture.
  • 43% of American Jews say that caring about Israel is essential to their Jewish identity.
  • 22% of all married Jewish couples in New York are intermarried.

Our Impact:

  • 533,000 people visit kveller.com every month, seeking meaningful conversations on raising their kids Jewishly.
  • 47,000 young Jews from the former Soviet Union discover what it means to be Jewish.
  • 38,434 young Jewish New Yorkers have experienced the wonder of Israel in the past five years, thanks to our support of Birthright.
  • 17,000 local college students stay connected to the Jewish community through 11 campus Hillels.
  • 15,000 kids across the New York area enjoy meaningful Jewish experiences at summer camp.
  • $1 million in scholarships goes to New York-area families for Jewish day school tuition.

With thanks to our network of nonprofits.
