Building Community & Inspiring Leadership

JTConnect has four pillar programs: Jewish Learning, Social Action, Teen Philanthropy, and Social Events. JTConnect offers meaningful opportunities for teens to come together to learn, build relationships and community, create positive change in the world,  and celebrate Jewishly throughout the year. JTConnect’s classes, programs, and events are enriching touch points along a young person’s Jewish journey, and offer valuable opportunities for growth and leadership development. JTConnect provides the Greater Hartford area with accessible and pluralistic Jewish teen programming that evolves with the needs of our community.

“Nowhere else would you be able to find some students passionately discussing Jewish mysticism in one room, while other students are doing yoga in the next. This freedom that JTConnect offers – to take agency over my learning – has allowed me to form a connection with Judaism on my own level.”

JTConnect Today


As our teens make their journeys from b’nai mitzvah to college students, the strong connections they forge today will be carried with them, guiding their everyday lives. That’s the gift you can give them.

Your support is vital. Together we are nurturing the next generation of Jewish leaders.
