Are you in middle or high school and looking to make an impact in our community? We’re shaking things up with Project Tikvah this year, and we want you to join us!

For the first time, Project Tikvah will be a three-part series. The first sessions will begin in October, with a focus on antisemitism, and will be held at local synagogues and JCCs*. We’re excited to share with you that we’re partnering with StandWithUs for these meaningful discussions. Middle-schoolers and high-schoolers will have their sessions at the same time but in different rooms – and everyone will receive 20 hours of community service upon completion of the program.

During Project Tikvah, you’ll:
• Discover the resilience of the Jewish people who faced discrimination throughout history and learn how it relates to today
• Gain the necessary tools and resources to bring your knowledge to action within your own social circle
• Explore the power of Jewish identity

*We are closely monitoring the continuously changing situation with COVID-19 and will adjust our event plans based on public health guidance. Masks will be required at all in-person events.
