Have you ever heard about JDC Entwine? JDC Entwine seeks to build a generation of young Jewish leaders who live a life of global Jewish responsibility. You might know about them from their transformative global service and travel experiences, innovative educational programs, and leadership development opportunities.

Did you know MHWOW partners with JDC Entwine for some of their alumni to be MHWOW hosts? The 2017 – 2018 Jewish Service Corps (JSC) fellows became MHWOW hosts to build Jewish young adult communities in their placements all around the world. Our JSC hosts brought the first Moishe House programs to four countries: Helsinki, Finland; Istanbul and Izmir, Turkey; Mumbai, India; and Copenhagen, Denmark.

We love working with JDC Entwine, and we are excited to share their latest DIY Toolkit: Films from the Field! Films from the Field helps you explore global Jewry by hosting intimate film screenings of carefully selected films.

This free downloadable toolkit includes:

  • A set of complimentary films with descriptions
  • A regionally inspired popcorn recipe
