Reasons why Jewrnalism’s voice is desperately needed in the global Jewish community:


Central and Eastern Europe has rich and growing Jewish communities, rising from, and, in spite of, the ashes of the Holocaust.  Blending the past and the present, this region holds hundreds of years of history and heritage and is the root of many Jewish family trees.

Yet, Jews visiting Central and Eastern Europe often come with negative stereotypes and prejudices about this region.  Too often, outdated and inaccurate materials are used for group heritage and education tours for young Jews visiting from around the world. 

Jewrnalism’s mission is to inform and educate Jews around the world of contemporary Jewish European life.  Jewrnalism, founded in 2011 is a network of young journalists in over 23 countries.

Jews living in this region have important stories to tell about what it means to be Jewish.  These stories inform world Jewry about our past, and the strength of our present, and, future.

Sharing vital stories about their reviving Jewish communities connects these journalists to their own Jewish story, strengthening world Jewry.

Jewrnalism is dedicated to developing young Jewish leaders. While money and time are allocated for seminars, the potential of these young Jews is often unrealized due to their geographical distance from Jewish communities in Europe, the U.S. and Israel. 

Supporting Jewrnalism with a gift of $100 or more will provide the necessary resources for them to engage and participate in projects with world Jewry.
