Ideas—Ensuring the Jewish Future

Dust of Europe

Dust of Europe is a multimedia project whose goal is to reach out to and to inspire young members of the Jewish community to dig into their families’ history. Shakespeare said, “What is Past is Prologue.” History is not irrelevant. The documentary portion of the project follows me, a 29-year-old as I track the path of my great-grandfather, Joseph Kershner, as he journeyed from Burlington, Vermont back to Turysk, Ukraine to save family members. Tracking the exciting story has also been a personal journey that has helped me to discover how I can use my career to have a greater…

MAKING SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATION WORK

It's no secret that post- Bar/Bat Mitzvah Supplemental Jewish education is plagued by high drop-out rates. Unfortunately, the response by many supplemental programs has been to cut school hours and material from the curriculum. But with rising intermarriage rates and lower levels of education among many Jewish youth, attempts to keep students in the classroom by decreasing emphasis on education should strike many as troubling. It is for this reason that I propose the creation of a program in which Jewish high school students are given the opportunity to receive an intensive Jewish education by studying in classes taught by…

Healthy marriages represent the core of our ability to keep the fundamental aims of Jewish continuity alive.

Camp Oasis Creating a Better Vision for LA, One Camper at a Time

Holiday Pilgrimage

The holidays of Pessach, Shavuot and Sukkot mark three special points in the year when the entire Jewish community would unite in Jerusalem to celebrate together. The State of Israel was reintroduced to the world amidst a business savvy population- one which drives travel prices up specifically at popular times such as holidays. This project aims at securing affordable family trips to Israel, encouraging jubilant celebratory experience in the heart of our homeland along with all of our brothers and sisters.
