To create a renaissance of Jewish pride in New York City.
We meet Jewish New Yorkers ‘where they are’ and connect them to their spiritual and cultural inheritance.
We provide individualized learning, social and travel programs that transform ignorance to awareness, apathy to excitement, and curiosity to commitment.
We inspire Jewish pride and leadership, and empower positive contribution to Jewish communities worldwide.
The Aish Center provides cutting-edge social and learning opportunities for young Jewish professionals in New York City in a warm, welcoming, and open atmosphere. Whether you want Business Networking Events, a Crash Course in Hebrew, Jewish Wisdom for Living, or the Israel adventure of a lifetime, Aish NY offers you access to more of the value in being Jewish.
Since 1974, Aish has been dedicated to revitalizing the Jewish world by reintroducing Jews everywhere to their heritage. Today it is a dynamic, rapidly expanding Jewish social and educational network committed to a worldwide renaissance of the Jewish people.
