Exciting ways to connect Jewishly

The Jewish Federation’s overseas partner agency, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), is hosting a number of mission trips in 2016 through its Entwine program, a one-of-a-kind movement for young Jewish leaders, influencers, and advocates who seek to make a meaningful impact on global Jewish needs and international humanitarian issues. Entwine’s Insider Trips for young professionals are dynamic, sophisticated, and geared toward the globally-minded. Each trip offers a unique opportunity to understand and impact global Jewish and humanitarian challenges around the world, alongside your peers from North America, UK, Australia, Latin America, and beyond.

Are you interested in learning about the needs of Jewish communities in countries like India, Argentina, Turkey, Hungary, Ethiopia, Ukraine, Israel, and beyond? Are you ready to take action that will make a real difference in these communities? Are you excited about building relationships with Jews around the world? Are you open to taking greater responsibility and more of a leadership role in the global Jewish community? If the answer is yes, then an Entwine Insider Trip is for you! Winter 2016
