NEW: Jewish Service Ambassador Program
Learn More

“We need a new approach to Zionism, a new approach to Jewish identity in the diaspora and a new mood of relationship between the two”.

– Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, zt”l

Our Mission

To give young Jews the opportunity to strengthen their Jewish identity and their connection to Israel through a year of service – where they can learn, grow, and give back.

To equip Jewish youth around the world with a big picture understanding of antisemitism and empower them to stand up against hate back home.

To create a meaningful relationship between Israel and the Diaspora – where all Jews embrace and work towards a shared responsibility to a shared future.

To cultivate an active, engaged network of Alumni to be strong community leaders and committed Zionists.

UJA Jewish Service strives to make our wide variety of Israel experiences affordable for all. And now, your own Jewish Service experience is more accessible than ever. We currently allow participants to earn their own scholarships through the Jewish Service Ambassador Program. Here’s how it works: When you become a Jewish Service Ambassador, you can refer other students to one of our Jewish Service programs and earn cash towards a scholarship for the program of your choice. For every participant you refer, you will earn $100 towards your scholarship.

The program is open to students ages 17-20.
