What We Do
Jconnect Seattle offers young adults in their twenties and thirties the opportunity to find and build community, engage in Jewish life and holiday celebrations, and to experience the diverse activities available in Seattle. We annually provide hundreds of young Jewish adults with access to monthly events for Shabbat and holidays, social justice, outdoor activities, Israel, arts and culture, and professional and leadership development.
jconnect is a program of Hillel UW.
