To create a safe place for the Jewish teenager and young adult searching for his or her internal identity and individual self;
To allow the teenager and young adult to harness his or her unique constellation of strengths in order to create a purposeful and pleasurable direction in life; and
To connect the disconnected adolescent with his or her family, the values of the Jewish people, and the larger process of making a positive contribution to humanity.
אם אין אני לי מי לי? וכשאני לעצמי מה אני? ואם לא עכשיו, אימתי?
If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? Yet if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, then when?
(Rabbi Hillel, 1st century C.E.)
