Jewgether’s mission is to encourage Jews from all over the world to open their homes, minds, and hearts to each other.
We believe that the way to strengthen the Jewish community is to foster mutual understanding and personal relationships both locally and globally.
Through opportunities to “stay”, “travel”, or “hang out” with other Jews,
our users will broaden their perspectives by meeting others around the world who share a Jewish identity.
Jewgether's 3 main goals are to:
- Enhance relationships within Jewish communities around the world.
- Promote relationships between Jews in the diaspora and the people of Israel.
- Strengthen the Jewish identity of Jews all over the world.
Jewgether have 6,000 members from 60 countries, over the years we got many possitve feedbacks following “Jewgetherings.”
One such comment came from Yoni
an Israeli hosted by Alejandro
in Argentina who said,
"I wish to thank you for your amazing site. I was really surprised to see how much more
are the Jewish people willing to invite me home. Almost all the people I sent messages
to replied, and three out of five said they will be happy to have me, which is much
more than I received in other cases”.
Jewgether began in 2009 as a passion project by founders Tamir Einy, Doron Samish, and Boaz Albaranes.
All of them where Electrical engineering students from the Technion – Israel's Institute of Technology in Israel.
The students graduated the StandWithUs Israel Fellowship, a year-long program which empowers Israeli students to be informed,
active, articulate and globally-minded future leaders.
