This #GivingTuesday, will you help build a Jewish community that actively supports its members in cultivating mental health and wellness?

I don’t need to tell you we’re facing a mental health crisis.  Across almost every metric, the pandemic accelerated troubling trends in youth mental health. We know young people are struggling with mental health. And we also know that they exhibit incredible resilience and potential. BaMidbar was born from the Jewish camping movement and founded on the belief that Jewish tradition provides tremendous opportunities for growth and self-discovery.

With mental health rising to the forefront of many organization’s agendas, we know it is our responsibility to use our clinical expertise to strengthen youth mental health in the broader community.

BaMidbar has proven its ability to boost resilience and improve mental health outcomes for young people. Through BaMidbar’s programs, Jewish communal professionals are building the knowledge, skills, and confidence to support mental health and wellness in role-appropriate ways. Educators are looking at Jewish learning experiences through a mental health lens. Young people and their families feel supported by their peers and community, and recognize the ways Judaism is robustly supportive of their mental health and well-being.

In 2023, BaMidbar will be rolling out a new strategic plan outlining a bold vision for the future – expanded access to clinical services, expanded reach of educational programs, and expanded impact across the board.

As a pioneering organization addressing youth and young adult mental health in the Jewish community, BaMidbar is poised to help move the needle on this important issue.

This #GivingTuesday, will you help us expand our impact? Support BaMidbar today to strengthen youth and young adult mental health in the Jewish community. We can’t do this work without you!

With gratitude,

Jory Hanselman Mayschak, CEO
