TULSA | Strengthening the social fabric and economic future of Tulsa

We are invested in ensuring a bright future for a diverse, dynamic, inclusive Jewish people deeply connected to Israel and committed to making the world a better place.

“Jewish” is neither a static nor insular term. While a set of core values underpins Jewish traditions, the Jewish community is a rich tapestry of experiences, identities and ideas. The greatest wellspring of vitality rests with the younger generation of Jews, each on a personal Jewish journey, all with something to contribute to the greater whole.

The Challenge

For 25 years, we have been spreading the joy of Jewish living, giving and learning to young Jews in communities around the world. We seek to inspire them to connect with their Jewish identities, become more involved in their communities and with the Jewish people, and ultimately help shape vibrant Jewish life for future generations.

We’re giving teens the chance to decide—on their own terms—what it means to be Jewish and how to make a difference in the world. - Matt Grossman, Executive Director, BBYO

We pursue our mission by working with our partners to support and create relevant, accessible Jewish experiences that engage hundreds of thousands of young Jews during the formative teen to young adult years. These experiences aim to foster a culture of service, connect young people with Israel and welcome all who seek to lead active Jewish lives.

From one house in Oakland, we grew into the largest organization serving young Jewish adults post-college. - David Cygielman, CEO, Moishe House

We also help to cultivate leadership by enabling young Jews to be actively involved in shaping the experiences in which they participate. In recent years, we have built our own proprietary programs, including ROI Community and REALITY, to further develop a network of young leaders who are bringing new models of thinking and engagement into the Jewish community.

Since its inception, ROI has created a unique space for young Jews from around the world to take risks and engage in their Jewishness in exciting and innovative ways. -Esther Kustanowitz, ROI Community Member

Through these and other programs, we are investing in the next generation of volunteer and professional leaders who will help to strengthen Jewish communities around the world and perpetuate a virtuous cycle of active, vibrant Jewish life.
