“I want to build my life and career here in Montreal so I recently got involved with Federation CJA’s Young Adult Division and started going to different events and meeting new people. It’s been a great connector.
As I’ve become more involved, so have my friends. My circle is widening and I love to invite other young people to the events I participate in, especially those who don’t have much family in Montreal. I had never realized how many different opportunities there are for people like me to get involved, be it through volunteering, networking, or coming together over food. There’s a place for everyone.”
Last year 7,259 young Montrealers participated in Federation CJA programs that provide opportunities for social, networking and leadership development, which help to foster a sense of belonging among vibrant and engaged Jewish youth.
