A group of Yale Jewish alumni, including Eli’s Mishpacha, have launched a new, comprehensive Yale Shared Interest Group (SIG) called the Yale Jewish Alumni Association (YJAA). YJAA is a registered 501(c)(3) in Connecticut and will act as an umbrella national organization for local YJAA chapters, and a convener of campus engagement. Through this effort, under the guidance of the Association of Yale Alumni, we aim to meet the needs of all Jewish alumni.
YJAA’s mission is to strengthen the Yale Jewish alumni community by creating connection and enabling lifelong learning and service.
YJAA’s vision is to:
- Connect Yale Jewish alumni with each other, the Yale Jewish campus community, and Yale;
- Foster pluralism bringing together Yale Jewish alumni across the spectrum of Jewish identities as well as past and present on-campus Jewish affiliations; and
- Empower Yale Jewish alumni to do good for Yale, for the Jewish people, and for the world.
