10 to Watch

This annual list highlights young organizations and projects in North America that are making positive change and responding to current and timely needs.

The “10 to Watch” list features organizations and projects that use creative approaches to respond to current and timely needs — and have great potential to enrich the Jewish future. Eligible organizations serve a North American audience, have been in the field for less than five years, and provide a fresh way to address a relevant problem.

The initiatives selected for the 2023 ‘10 to Watch’ list are addressing a range of needs and experiences in the Jewish community—abortion access, mental health education, opportunities for BIPOC Jewish artists, new models for prayer and spirituality, and much more! Based in North America, these initiatives have been active in the field for a minimum of one year and a maximum of five years.

We hope to drive funding and attention to these emerging ventures to showcase their ground-breaking work — and highlight their relevance to young Jews today.
