Black-Jewish Teen Cultural Exchange Program

Join a cohort of 12 Black and/or Jewish teens who are committed to building and strengthening relationships between the African American community and Jewish community. Together, we will create new friendships while engaging in thoughtful and meaningful dialogue around race, religion, and culture.
