Young Jews today -- individually and collectively -- enjoy more freedom to integrate into the world than at any time in our history. That freedom is a tremendous blessing, but it puts a new and challenging onus on the Jewish world to clarify how being Jewish fits in amidst so many possibilities. There is an unprecedented opportunity to showcase Judaism’s relevance to all aspects of life and worldly affairs, and to shed its light in new places and ways. Our responsibility is to show young people that Judaism is not an artifact from another time or place; rather it is full of practical meaning and value, enhancing experiences at home, work and play.
Mosaic United believes there is a way for us to be inclusive, Jewish, and united.
Our vision is an inspired, empowered, thriving Jewish people – connected with each other and the State of Israel -- illuminating the world.
Making this vision a reality is a daunting job. We simply cannot do it on our own. We must work together, as a people. As history has shown - from the founding of the State of Israel to the rescue of Soviet Jewry to the homecoming of Ethiopian Jews – we can achieve miraculous outcomes when diaspora and Israeli Jews come together.
For the first time in history, the State of Israel is investing in the Diaspora – through Mosaic United – to build a thriving, pluralistic worldwide Jewish community that will ensure the future of our people.
There is a lot of exciting and important work already being done by dedicated Jewish organizations. Mosaic United will partner with these innovators. Our goal is to exponentially expand their effectiveness and impact. Mosaic United will be a catalyst in bringing together a powerful and passionate coalition of visionary philanthropists, dynamic organizations and the State of Israel - to inspire, connect, and empower young Jews like never before.
Together, we will break down the barriers between organizations and denominations. We will celebrate what unites us as we look toward a global Jewish future larger than any one movement or any single point of view. Together our work will be stronger. Together our impact will last longer. As Mosaic United, we will build a stronger Jewish future. Together.
Over and over, it has been proven that the Jewish people accomplish the most when working together towards a shared goal. Today, we find a tremendous number of philanthropists, organizations, activists and teachers doing amazing things individually. We seek to bring together the best of the best to multiply the impact of all towards creating a stronger and lasting connection to the next generation.
There are many ways that a person can connect with all that Judaism has to offer. For some it is community. For some it is culture. For some it is Israel. For some it is our traditions or texts. Our approach is to continuously study the landscape and support the approaches that are most effective.
Each young person has a unique life journey. At every stage, we aim to connect them Jewishly. Repeated Jewish experiences, over time, are shown to impact attitudes and life decisions in ways that singular experiences do not. Our approach to promoting the continuity of the Jewish people is to engage and reengage young Jews throughout their lives.
We recognize that technology and the world are constantly changing. We will seek new ways to make our efforts more effective in meeting the next generation and will never act based on the adage: "That's how it’s always been done."
