If you’re aged 18-35 and an immigrant or visiting Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, get connected with Israeli society and each other through popular social events, career workshops, and other services by Connect Israel.
Through Connect Israel, hundreds of young people—newcomers, veteran Israelis, participants in various programs, tourists, and Jewish students who are living or visiting Israel—come together to form an Israel-based activity center.
In Tel Aviv, about 2,000 people participate in Connect programs each year, forming friendships, getting help finding employment and housing, creating a community, and having fun. Connect Jerusalem just opened in 2013 and is growing. (Stay in touch, because there are also often programs in Be’er Sheva and nationwide.)
