Our History

Jewish Girls Retreat created such love and connection that Nechama Laber and Leah Caras (creator of Yaldah Magazine) put their heads together to try to figure out how to sustain the ‘JGR way’ year round. The girls begged for camp year round. Coach Susan Axelrod, joined them with a strategy, and Jewish Girls Unite, a global online community for Jewish girls is the result!  

 

Our Mission

We are a global community and family of Jewish girls connected by a common heritage, using cutting-edge approaches in education and technology.  We celebrate Jewish girls and women, Jewish life and values, and creativity. We aim to inspire Jewish girls to embrace their Judaism with pride and become the mothers and leaders of the future. Jewish Girls Unite encourages girls to tap into their hidden talents, use the arts to express their Judaism, and pursue their dreams.
