USA meets EuropeAmerican Friends of ECJS is a newly formed society. We plan to coordinate cultural and educational events for young Jews across the US and Europe. The majority of Jews living in America originate from Europe. As such, these events will provide an opportunity to explore their roots. The conventions will bring Europeans and Americans together both in America and in Europe, so they can learn about each others culture and build a transatlantic Jewish network opening new horizons and prospects. Many Americans participate in exchange programs to work or study in Europe and vice versa. These types of events will ensure that participation in such exchange programs will include a built in support system of friends and firsthand knowledge about life in either continent.
USA ConventionOne major event a year is planned to be held in the US with participants joining from Europe. It will be a cultural and educational experience for Americans to see how European Jews live with a different lifestyle, under different conditions and social pressures. Other smaller events will be held throughout the year mainly in NYC.
