30 hours to triple your impact! Light Up #OurJewishFuture

Growth begins with a spark. With proper care and attention, that spark bursts forth into a flame. The flame brings light and warmth to its surroundings.  For the past 12 years, MEOR has provided that spark and created that light.

Today, the flames from MEOR illuminating thousands of students are felt on campuses across the country. Thousands of Jewish students are searching for connection to their Jewish heritage and meaning beyond the typical college experience. They want to live lives of purpose and connect to their Jewish legacy. However, without appropriate assistance, these sparks will sputter. Their interest and their Jewish heritage will fade.

And if one generation loses touch with its Jewish identity, what will become of the next generation? You have the power to create change. You have the chance to turn small flickers of curiosity into fires of passionate connection.

Your support enables MEOR to enhance educational programs and trips servicing more students on more campuses each and every year. Your gift ignites a passion for Jewish learning, involvement, and community. With your help, we can create the Jewish leaders of the future with the desire and skills to impact their families, communities, and the world at large.

Take Alisa for example. She is a college freshman with a bright and promising future.  As a young adult about to create her own independent reality she is curious about her Jewish roots.  Sunday school bored her, synagogue was a drag and she felt many of her big philosophical questions never got answered, but she wants to give Judaism one last try.

She needs caring, wise, dynamic mentors to engage her with Jewish traditions. She needs experiences to help awaken her Jewish soul and a warm, welcoming community with which to experience Jewish life.

This is where we need your assistance. Unless someone decides Alisa’s future is worth investing in and fighting for, then her Jewish spark may never ignite.

Each dollar donated to MEOR helps engage and support students like Alisa. MEOR impacts students at elite universities and helps them grapple with these foundational questions about how to create a good life, a Jewish life.  MEOR students have not only gone on to create successful careers in business, politics, and science but have also built inspirational Jewish homes and families in the process.

Through igniting a single spark, your gift to MEOR can create a flame that will kindle countless others for generations to come.

Your gift makes a profound difference.

With your help, young leaders like Alisa will finally find the connection to Judaism they have been yearning for. They will form strong, proud, refined Jewish identities and will inspire others to establish this connection and explore the deeper roots of Jewish life. Is there anything more valuable?

Of course, none of this is possible without people like you. You can empower these students. You can inspire them to be proud and passionate Jews.

Now is the best time to support MEOR. This cause is so crucial that generous donors have agreed to triple every dollar given to this campaign until December 12th.

The impact of your gift cannot be overstated. Your donation will transform the lives of Jewish students all over America. You can provide that spark that transforms a tiny ember into a blazing, passionate flame.

Please donate now and TRIPLE your impact.
