Junction understands each Jewish community on a micro level, thus knows best how to help young people from all over Europe to learn, grow, and thrive.


We are here to inspire Jewish young people to create engagement. Our long-term mission is to create a community of dedicated individuals and their own network of empowerment.

We act as a partner and friend to enable young Jews to take ownership of their Jewish life by offering the needed resources.


Junction is a network of empowered and like-minded European Jews who are connected, dynamic, inspired, innovative, self-sustaining and who take an active part in the pan-European Jewry in order to foster global Jewish life relevant for the present and future.

Junction has the role of the catalyst which propels young jews into getting active within their own Jewish local communities, or empowers them to create jewish communities around themselves.


What we do

We organize international gatherings throughout the year in the following categories, each in a Jewish frame:

  • Professional/personal development and exploration
  • Education and exchange of ideas and expertise
  • Cultural discussion and celebration

We engage networks of young people in the longer-term through micro-grants and other opportunities to lead their own initiatives.

We introduce participants to diverse, modern and positive ways to experience being Jewish.

The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation (Schusterman) is a global organization that seeks to ignite the passion and unleash the power in young people to create positive change for themselves, the Jewish community and the broader world. Schusterman pursues its mission by working collaboratively.
