Jewish Student Connection provides Jewish teens in public and private high schools with an in-school informal education experience focused on compelling issues of Jewish pride, identity and connection to Israel: the JSC club. As teenagers are students first, Jewish Student Connection meets them where they are, in their schools, either at the end of the day or during non-instructional periods, like lunch. JSC clubs are easily accessible and safe spaces where teens can explore what being Jewish means to them, alongside their Jewish and non-Jewish peers, in an already familiar environment.
We envision a thriving Jewish future, where young generations celebrate our heritage, embrace Jewish culture, faith and values, are proud to call themselves “Jewish”.
To help Jewish teens explore what [Jewish] means to them, inspiring proud personal connections with our culture, with Our People, with Israel – with each other.
