We’ve partnered with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the largest Jewish humanitarian aid organization in the world and one of the Federation’s historic partners, to provide international travel opportunities for Jewish Angelenos in their 20s and 30s through JDC Entwine.
Focusing on humanitarian aid, serving Jews in need, and disaster relief, participants explore the diversity of the global Jewish community, while learning about JDC and Federation’s combined efforts to alleviate hunger and hardship and to help Jews around the world thrive.
Each year, the Federation partners with JDC Entwine to offer one trip exclusively for Jewish Angelenos in their 20s and 30s. Learn more now and let us know if you’re interested – email SAustin@JewishLA.org.
