The Foundation warmly welcomes teens of interfaith families to Y2I. Approximately 40 percent of teens in 2015 Y2I were from interfaith families.
To qualify for 2016 Y2I, teen must:
- Be Jewish, consider himself/herself Jewish, and be raised exclusively in the Jewish faith. If you need further clarification, contact Deborah Coltin, Executive Director of the Lappin Foundation, at 978-740-4428 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Out of respect for traditional Jewish beliefs, Messianic Jews do not qualify for the Y2I program.
