Amitim2.0 Joint Projects
JCC Global Amitim2.0-Fellows connected 50 JCCs from 15 countries that invented, developed and implemented global programs that brought their members closer to Jews in their own communities and around the world.
The Executive Directors and Lay Leaders of these JCCs, who were identified as key change agents, are part of our global network. After spending a week together in New York, USA, in November 2017, the JCCs are worked on 15 global projects. Each group was composed from JCCs from different regions: North America, Israel and Europe/FSU/Latin America.
The Fellows spent another week in Israel in December 2019 at the Amitim2.0-Fellows Assembly and 10th World Conference of JCCs. Eventually, Jewish Peoplehood will be integrated into the life of the local JCC.
