What doors can our Movement open for recent high school graduates?

The Open Doors Campaign is a stepping stone for recent high school graduates as they pursue new endeavors with their future on the horizon. Open Doors is a brief survey where graduating high schoolers  share what the immediate future looks like for them.
Share this brief survey with recent high school grads (within the last few years!), so we can connect them in the future with their nearest Jewish community and help them get a “foot in the door.” For added incentive, 10 participants will receive a $150 cash gift card! Click Here  for the survey link and ask your family and friends to complete it.
