Birthright Israel, Special Order
In an effort to reinvent itself and stay relevant to young adults, Birthright Israel, the program that trademarked the free 10-day Israel trip for the 18-26 crowd, is exploring the niche market. The new effort is inspired by the desire to draw in more unaffiliated young adults who have no prior connection to Israel, rather than a decreased interest in the standard 10-day trip, said Noa Bauer, Birthright’s vice president of international marketing. “We know that today millennials are interested in personalized things,” said Bauer, speaking to the Jewish Week by phone from Israel. “When a group of people starts off with shared interests, everyone is immediately more comfortable and connected.” This is key to connecting to those who “didn’t grow up with Israel as part of their vocabulary,” she added. “We’re looking to extend our pool and stay close to our consumer market.”

Hillel International Launches New Initiative to Build Talent Pipeline for Jewish World
Hillel International recently announced an ambitious new project that seeks to strengthen the talent pipeline for Jewish organizations through new positions for recent college graduates on campuses across the country. The Springboard Fellowship will train cohorts of young Jewish professionals in highly-valued skillsets and place them at local Hillel campuses for two years. The Springboard Fellowship is a reimagining of the Steinhardt Jewish Campus Service Corps Fellowship, which Hillel ran from 1994 to 2008 and trained a generation of emerging Jewish communal leaders through their roles in Jewish student engagement.

Honeymoon Israel: Building Ties That Bind
Since the Spring of 2014 we have been sharing our journey through the launch and ongoing progress of Honeymoon Israel (HMI). From the beginning, HMI partnered with Rosov Consulting to support, document and evaluate the program’s early impact on the couples who participate. In September 2016, the Rosov team delivered its first outcomes report documenting the outcomes for couples on twelve separate trips taking place between June 2015 and March 2016. Even as the Rosov team continues to assess the outcomes of our current trips, we have come together to share some of the findings that, we believe, have implications for others working to engage young couples and young families around their Jewish journeys.

The Jewish Futures 2016 Conference
In the 20th century, Jewish education focused on strengthening Jewish identity and ensuring Jewish continuity. That approach to Jewish education no longer works for today's learners. They want to know how Jewish teachings and practices can make their lives better and the world better. They want Jewish life to help them flourish as human beings, to help them be "happy" in the fullest Jewish sense of that term. Drawing on insights of world-renowned behavioral psychologist Dan Ariely, and bringing his findings into dialogue with Jewish teaching and practice, the 2016 Jewish Futures Conference (December 14, 2016 – Columbia University, NYC) will explore the elements of and conditions for human happiness and well-being, and how Jewish education can be redirected to answer the aspirations of 21st century learners.

Hillel Survey shows a Relationship between Exposure to Hillel and their Relationship to Jewish Life on Campus
Students’ interactions with their campus Hillels correlate to a significant increase in the students’ positive connections with Jewish life. This is the key finding of a survey conducted by Hillel International over the past two years as part of an ongoing effort by the organization to use hard data to improve student experiences. Hillel’s 2016 survey of more than 10,000 Jewish college students from across North America and the former Soviet Union found that students’ connection to Jewish life grows with each interaction. At least six interactions with Hillel programs and staff per year had the strongest result.

Chabad On Campus - The Hertog Study
This study, commissioned and funded by the Hertog Foundation, and conducted by a team of academic researchers, was undertaken to learn about Chabad on Campus International, an organization that seeks to enhance Jewish identity and practice among Jewish college students at almost 200 American college campuses. Campus centers are run by Orthodox married couples trained at rabbinical schools and seminaries run by the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. The study was designed to learn who comes to Chabad at college campuses, how Chabad works with undergraduate students, and what impact Chabad involvement during college has on the post-college lives of young Jewish adults.

Fostering Long-Term Engagement with Israel is Simpler Than You Might Think
At the risk of stating the obvious, there is one proven solution to creating a solid foundation for a lifetime of engagement: spending months living, studying and working in Israel. Over the course of 12 years leading the field of top immersive international experiences in Israel, we have learned some important lessons. Namely, that the firsthand encounter with day-to-day life in Israel, which can only be attained by being on the ground for a sustained, continuous amount of time, makes all the difference to MASA's 120,000 alumni around the world.

Backpacking with a Prayer: Tradition and Modernity
This study focuses on the phenomenon of Israeli backpacking as a function of traditional, observant, and secular population segments. We explored whether and to what degree backpacking features are related to the affinity of backpackers with the Jewish tradition and faith. Our study was based on a sample of 120 Israeli backpackers who had returned to Israel in the past five years. An analysis of the survey indicates a clear association between the length of the backpacking trip and the affinity of backpackers with the Jewish tradition and faith.
