We’re catalyzing the next generation.
At this chaotic and critical moment in time, Jews around the world still choose to connect — or reconnect — to their cultural heritage. JDC makes it possible. We're fostering inspiring Jewish experiences for children, teens, and families, and investing in exciting young leaders from nearly every continent who are committed to shaping their communities’ futures.
Through Jewish Community Centers, summer camps, family retreats, young leadership training and more, we're harnessing the energy and passion of Jews worldwide. And as Jewish communities across the globe confront rising anti-Semitism, far-right political extremism, and heightened terror, we're ensuring they are resilient — ready to take on whatever challenges come their way.
Our one-of-a-kind movement for young Jewish leaders, influencers, and advocates offers the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on global Jewish needs and international humanitarian issues through engaging trips, moving volunteer experiences, and more.Read Jason's Story
