The Jewish Agency for Israel and Jerusalem Village, a grassroots young adult community project in the city, have begun a survey of young Jewish adults around the world. The survey is the first of its kind asking about the experiences, perceptions and preferences of young visitors to Israel and Jerusalem.
Questions focus on topics such as interest in aliyah, areas of life where support might be needed for those considering a move to Israel, helpful resource centers, perceptions of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv as centers of young adult community, quality of life concerns and experiences while in Israel and Jerusalem-based activities and opportunities.
Survey results will provide information needed to design innovative community-based and welcoming activities and projects for young Jewish adults. Survey sponsors seek ways to capitalize on the variety of programs that meet the needs and expectations of Jewish young adults while maximizing the resources invested in this population.
Designed with input from partner organizations the survey focuses on the connections young adults from abroad have built with Israel, the city of Jerusalem, Israelis and their opinions on visiting Israel and making Aliyah.
The survey is being distributed internationally via social media and a variety of organizations including the ROI Community, Nefesh b’Nefesh, Hillel International, PresenTense, Masa Israel Journey, Connect Israel, JSpace, Moishe House, Michael Levin Lone Soldier Center and Tel Aviv International Salon with others joining daily.
