Connecting Jews Worldwide

Project TEN

For Jewish young adults from around the world who want to work in disadvantaged communities, we provide them the chance to contribute alongside Israelis in civic and sustainability programs through Project TEN. In 2019, at seven centers around the world, Project TEN volunteers made a difference in the lives of 3,500 beneficiaries.

Project TEN offers sustainable-development volunteer programs in a Jewish framework, allowing participants to live and work together while exploring Jewish culture and tikkun olam (repairing the world).

In 2019, we opened a new Project TEN center in Mitzpe Ramon in the south of Israel. That center was the second Project TEN center in Israel, with another located in the Galilee at Kibbutz Harduf. Outside Israel, Project TEN also has centers in Ghana, Uganda, South Africa, Mexico and Greece, with new centers coming soon in Cambodia, Angola and Peru.

We also partnered with Mosaic United in 2019 to scale the success of Project TEN by developing Shalom Corps. Shalom Corps is a platform that matches millennial Jews with meaningful Jewish volunteer experiences around the world; Project TEN will be listed on the platform.

“Through this venture, we are bringing a new message to young Jews in Israel and throughout the world and enable them to volunteer in disadvantaged communities around the globe, while deepening their Jewish identity and their relationship with Israel,” said Jewish Agency Chairman Isaac Herzog.



We see the change in the communities we are helping and it’s a beautiful experience. When you get to volunteer together with a group of people, and live together and grow together, you find something new within all these other people and within yourself. And that is very meaningful,” Charlotte, Project TEN participant at Harduf. Read more about her life-changing time at Harduf here >
