Social Action Programs & Campaigns

Tikkun Olam, or repairing the world, is a crucial element of Jewish life, and Young Judaea strongly believes in empowering you to make a difference in the world around you. That’s why we work tirelessly to ensure that when you participate in a Young Judaea program, you’ll be engaging in hands-on projects that make a direct impact.

Alternative Winter Break

Established as a response to Hurricane Katrina, Alternative Winter Break is an exciting service-learning program that promotes social responsibility, volunteerism and Tikkun Olam, the Jewish value of repairing the world. One week can make all the difference!

In 2019, Young Judaea returned to Puerto Rico to assist in recovery and rebuilding efforts following Hurricane Maria.
