“We sought students who would have never been involved with organized Jewish life. And we gave them the keys to the car.” What’s touted as Hillel’s most successful outreach strategy sounds pretty unimpressive to us. Sure you can reach a lot of people, but what about the quality, the depth, and the impact? We’re the biggest proponent of student leadership and empowerment, but giving the keys to the car to people who’ve never driven a car, never taken driving lessons, and maybe never even been inside a car seems terribly irresponsible and ineffective. What if instead we gave leadership roles to vast numbers of students with rich and diverse Jewish communal experience, and empowered them to reach their peers through intimate, meaningful, Jewish experiences and relationships? That sounds much better to us :)

Big news! Heart to Heart is now going to be working as part of an umbrella of student leadership called Yavneh On Campus! What does that mean? More support for student leaders doing outreach on their campus, more Shabbatons to bring student leaders together, and a greater investment in our collective vision! More to come -- but for now, make sure to like Yavneh s facebook page. And of course, let us know if you have any questions or suggestions!

We posted about this Israeli government program previously, but just saw that Heart to Heart (or technically a subsidiary) is listed as a model/inspiration for that program! Though just to be clear, we re not missionaries or settlers :)

While we re not Chabad (and would prefer inviting someone for Shabbat dinner, rather than putting tefillin on them), we definitely value the message and inspiration of the previous Lubavitcher Rebbe - in terms of caring about our fellows Jews. And we value our partnership with many from CHABAD on Campus who also spread that message!

A network of Jews sharing Jewish life with their peers - through Shabbat dinners, friendships, and community. Join us and spread the love!

Company Overview

Heart to Heart is a grassroots movement of Jewish college students sharing Jewish life with their peers on college campuses. Based on the values of loving all Jews and caring for others, the goal is to connect Jews to Jewish life - by Jewishly involved students sharing their experiences, their community, and of themselves. That happens through initiatives such as intimate Shabbat dinners, explanatory learning, and holiday programming, integrated with friendships and heart-to-heart conversations.


Our mission is to include uninvolved students in Jewish life by empowering Jewishly involved students to share meaningful experiences and relationships with their peers. We re carrying out this mission by setting up a grassroots movement on college campuses to promote welcoming and meaningful Jewish communities and practices.


Heart to Heart was founded in 2008
