JConnect is now an established part of the Seattle Jewish community for Jews 21-32 wanting to connect and reconnect to the Jewish community. As a transplant to Seattle, I've met a lot of great people through JConnect programs and have made some friends for life. Events such as Jews 'n Brews, the Spice It Up cooking class at Hillel with Israelis from Seattle's Partnership 2000 city in Israel, shabbat services and dinners, Jewish learning initiatives, and service opportunities have all been ways for me to connect to and with the Jewish community. Surpisingly, other U.S. cities have not emulated JConnect Seattle's model, so I feel lucky to be in a city and community that cares about its young adult Jewish population.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
its nonjudgmental nature and inclusiveness. I think there are events for Jews from many different backgrounds.
