INTERFACE Journeys: Explore, Engage, Discover.
“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” — Martin Buber
Be part of a select group of passionate philanthropists who share your desire to set out on immersive encounters in areas of great poverty and humanitarian need, delve into probing questions on Jewish thought as it relates to charitable action and purpose, and bring meaningful change to the lives of the less fortunate.
The year-long INTERFACE program is comprised of two to three underwritten journeys that will include:
- Travel to some of the world's most devastated and challenging countries, such as Haiti, Ethiopia, remote regions across the former Soviet Union, and beyond
- Meaningful participation in hands-on projects that work to bring relief to the impoverished
- Exposure to Jewish programming in disaster zones
- Explore the role of Jewish ethics, texts and resources in making a difference
- On-site dialogue exploring the role and impact of philanthropy amid disaster and dire need
While each individual journey promises to be intensely stimulating and demanding, the culmination of the year’s experiences will be a powerful blend of adventure, connection, growth, and transformation.
