By becoming an active participant in the Young Adult Division, you will find new and exciting ways to meet other young professionals who share your values and interests.

Looking for Volunteer Opportunities? YAD has you covered!

Make a difference and give back by joining YAD’s Hands on Tidewater (HoT) group for volunteer events around town. HoT events combine a few hours of volunteerism with a chance to get to know other YAD’ians. The commitments are short-term, but the differences can be long-lasting both for those helped and the volunteers themselves.

Hineni! Mission to Israel

Hineni! – Institute for Leadership Development2215

Hineni! is an innovative leadership program designed to give young adults the insight and skills that will help them in their personal and professional lives, and empower them to lead the Jewish community into the future. It will encourage reflection on Jewish values and social justice, personal roles and commitments, the call to heal the world (tikkun olam) and tzedakah. Facilitators are internationally recognized as leaders in their fields. Program graduates are invited to participate in a heavily subsidized exclusive week-long mission to Israel in June 2017

Hineni! is open by invitation to qualified young Jewish adults who have demonstrated their commitment and leadership in the Young Adult Division of the UJFT. For more information, and to find out how you can be part of the 2018-2019 Hineni program contact us today!
