About Young Judaea
America’s oldest Zionist Youth Movement, Young Judaea provides high-quality and thought-provoking experiential programming through which Jewish youth and young adults build meaningful relationships with their peers and develop a lifelong commitment to Jewish life, the Jewish people, Israel and each other. Our life-changing camp, year-round and Israel experiences foster an open and pluralistic environment that encourages mutual respect and understanding between diverse groups of Jews and empower our chanichim (participants) by imbuing them with the self-confidence, independence, problem-solving skills, knowledge, and other tools they need to make informed choices for themselves and the communities they will help to shape.
