There were various attempts to resurrect existing and start new Jewish 20-something programs in Seattle, but none were successful until JConnect came along in ~2004. Since then, I and many others can credit JConnect with helping us (re)connect with and grow our Jewish identities, establish our social circles, and meet (and marry) our significant others. My experience with JConnect was so formative that I have since become a board member of the University of Washington Hillel, something I never would have anticipated before my involvement with the program.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Fantastic -- both extremely competent and unbelievably dedicated.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every week
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
