The European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS), CEJI-A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe and the European Peer Training Organisation (EPTO) have developed Generate, with the support of the Rothschild Hanadiv Europe Foundation, JDC, and the Dutch Jewish Humanitarian Fund.
We share a common vision for Jewish life in Europe: Jews who find meaning and feel pride in their Jewish identity, and who actively seek to shape their Jewish community and societies for the better.
However, we see that many Jews feel disengaged from communal life, for one reason or another, and don’t feel that they have a role to play in taking the Jewish community one step further. This is the very core of the issue we seek to address with our joint project “Generate”.
The vision of “Generate” is “a Jewish life built on everyone’s contribution, where people of any age are enabled to take initiative and shape their Jewish context”.
In this pilot phase of the project, we are taking a first step towards this vision through offering the opportunity to young Jewish adults to become “agents of change” in Jewish communities by training others in taking action for their Jewish community and society.
