A happy hour organized by Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles (JBBBSLA) and Masa Israel Journey drew 60 young adult Jewish professionals.
During the Aug. 16 event at The Parlor bar on Melrose Avenue, Rachael Sander, communications and outreach associate at JBBBSLA, and Avital Khazanov, southwest regional director at Masa Israel Journey, spoke about their respective organizations.
Sander highlighted volunteer opportunities available at JBBBSLA, and Khazanov discussed ways people could work abroad through Masa.
JBBBSLA provides free one-to-one mentoring for Jewish boys and girls. The organization is seeking young adults to serve as Big Brothers and Big Sisters to children in the program.
MASA Israel Journey describes itself as providing “an immersive international experience in Israel for young adults” ages 18–30. Its programs include internships, service learning, and Jewish studies programs.
