Second only to the nuclear family, the Jewish community has been what binds Jews to our identity and fortifies our commitment to Jewish peoplehood. However, it appears that a paradigm shift is evolving in Jewish society, as a growing proportion of young adults do not identify with the traditional structures of Jewish communities, not to be confused with Judaism itself. Judaism has a long theoretical and practical tradition of what today would be called “Intentional Communities”, and session explores Jewish Intentional Communities as a new method for engaging young adults (and families) in Jewish life, drawing in part on the experience and knowledge of this movement within Israel.
