The APJCC is excited to partner with the Israeli American Council (IAC) to offer the Eitanim program at the JCC.  IAC Eitanim brings together Jewish-American and Israeli-American teens for an immersive project-based experience. The teens work with mentors from the community to embark on entrepreneurial problem solving based in critical thinking and innovation. Learn more about this program on IAC’s website, www.israeliamerican.org/eitanim.

This program is run in communities around the country and it’s a great experience that helps teens connect to their Jewishness, engage in their community and learn more about Israel.
