Inspiring. Transformative. Enriching. Exciting. Words alone cannot adequately describe The Anne Samson Jerusalem Journey, known as TJJ, NCSY’s premiere summer program for public school teens.
From Masada to the Chuppah — these TJJ advisors and almuna not only found their spirituality on TJJ, but found their besherts too! Best Summer Ever?! I think so.
A program is only as strong as its leaders. With Rabbi Goldfischer at the forefront, it’s no wonder TJJ has had the success it’s had for the past 20 years.
Once you go NCSY, you can’t go back! Just ask Netanya Stein who’s first experience on TJJ’s summer program led her to weekly Latte & Learns, shabbatons, onegs, Yarchei Kallahs and then on to NCSY’s GIVE followed by NCSY’s JOLT and full circle back to TJJ as an advisor!
Who knew something as small as a bagel could change the trajectory of your life. For TJJ alumna Mo Lidsky, that something was his kippah.
From Huntsville, Alabama to YU… with inspiration from TJJ, Nate Trudeau’s plans for the US military got diverted to a seat in the beit midrash.
Founding a community-wide initiative, organizing Latte & Learns, and connecting a Holocaust survivor to his roots, this TJJ alumna doesn’t let anything get in her way – not even a 120 mile commute.
The Anne Samson Jerusalem Journey is celebrating its 20th summer since it launched in 1998. Learn more about how it started and what we’re doing to celebrate!
