GenZ Now: Night of Learning Westchester


Date: October 24th

Time: 7:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M. 

Jewish teens today are full of surprises. They love participating in Jewish life and culture. They are concerned about their peers' mental health. They count their parents among their closest friends. These are just a few of the findings The Jewish Education Project and Rosov Consulting discovered by surveying close to 18,000 Jewish teens from 14 national youth-serving organizations for GenZ Now: Understanding and Connecting With Jewish Teens Today. At this special evening for Jewish educators, clergy, lay leaders, and community stakeholders, hear from a diverse panel of Long Island teens about their lives, and learn more about this groundbreaking research and its implications for creating meaningful Jewish educational experiences for our teens and the Jewish community at large.
