FROM OUR BLOG
Even while they may be engaging less in traditional forms of community engagement, 78% of Jewish young adults report engaging in civic efforts each year, though only a fraction are currently doing so through Jewish frameworks. Shalom Corp and its partners are growing the number of young Jews participating in Jewish service-learning – and in deepening the educational and identity-building components of the authentic, meaningful service programs in which they participate.
