Rooted in the diversity of Jerusalem’s Jewish community, the Jerusalem Challenge helps young people “plug into” meaningful experiences such as Shabbat and holiday celebrations; Jewish learning opportunities; service programs involved in Tikun Olam (repairing the world); and face-to-face dialogue with their Israeli peers.
The goal of the Jerusalem Challenge is to help young Jewish adults to form a personal connection with Jerusalem – and to create a lasting relationship that is good as gold!
