Our Vision We envision a world in which Jews around the globe appreciate timeless Jewish wisdom and values and use them as an invaluable guide for living a more thoughtful, spiritual, and impactful life. The Problem Millions of Jews are disinterested in their religion and lack Jewish identity. We must take bold, innovative, and large-scale steps, to avoid the loss of 75% of our People in the next 20 years.

Our Mission
Create a worldwide culture of Torah learning with 3 million additional Jews incorporating Jewish wisdom into their lives and sharing it with others.

Our Plan

In order to create a culture shift in which the expression of one's Jewish identity is connected to learning Jewish wisdom, we are creating a sophisticated network of online content that includes micro-bursts of Jewish information, entertaining Jewish content, edutainment Jewish content and more substantive online learning opportunities, with a customer journey therein that guides users from one type of content to more substantial learning.

We will also engage on online and in-person events and campaigns to connect people to live experiences and to peer-to-peer motivation for learning.

Initiatives include:
"Aish Israel," a comprehensive and innovative collection of programs designed on bringing learning into secular Israeli culture that is grassroots, participant owned, and focused on leadership development and peer-to-peer inspiration.
Aish.com - one of the largest online resources for Jewish wisdom in existence today, we are including a more robust and funnel-oriented social media presence as well as longer-term learning portal.
Aish World Center - programming, guests and events at our center in Jerusalem becomes a hub for in-person events in Israel to kick-start a relationship with our online programming, or bring someone to more learning experiences to follow (or in conjunction with) our online programming. This includes Aish's Yeshiva and Gesher programs for men and for women.
Branches - Aish works with other independent centers throughout the United States to engage in in-person events and extend the power and reach of our online and Aish World Center experiences.

Aish has a unique history and innovative spirit in finding creative and new ways to reach Jews who are unfamiliar with our heritage. Comprised of leaders in the field of Jewish education, online resources, and more, Aish is uniquely qualified to implement this bold new initiative. We also have a longstanding relationships and brand familiarity with key strategic partners, as well as with Jews from all different backgrounds on every continent which are critical components to fulfill our goals.

Aish has a 45+-year history of reaching Jews and inspiring and help them to connect to timeless Jewish wisdom. As we enter year two of our new Aish2030 strategic vision, we have formulated a strategy, hired new team members, created new social media profiles on several channels, created new original micro and longer-form content, and have implemented a robust social media growth strategy with successful numbers at this early stage.

Having successfully completed a proof-of-concept phase on our new media, we will be creating additional content to engage people in our funnel, widening the base of our Israeli grassroots programs, and increasing our public relations efforts across to increase awareness and enthusiasm for our programming.
