Today's Jewish community provides a surplus of alternative and personalized ways to "be" Jewish. As a result, many young adults in their 20s and 30s are
living their Judaism outside the walls of denominational synagogue life. Realizing that traditional methods of engagement are no longer effective, Reform
congregations must think creatively and experiment with innovative partners and young adults to co-create new on-ramps into communal life.
The Young Adult Engagement Active Learning Network brings together URJ congregational professional and lay leaders that are
interested in exploring these concepts and applying them to building vibrant young adult communities. Topics discussed include: the challenges and
benefits of low-barrier entry points, how-to's of building a strong leadership
team and the realities of today's "do-it-yourself" Judaism.
