Masa Israel Journey on Monday launched the “Masa Engine,” a first-of-its-kind job search site designed for the organization’s alumni who are seeking positions in Jewish nonprofits and Israeli high-tech companies.
Companies with job postings on the platform include Wix, Outbrain, SodaStream and Monday.com. Participants can find positions in Israel and across the globe.
“Our mission is to connect people to Israel for life, and that includes professional life,” said Masa CEO Ofer Gutman.
According to Masa, young adults who spend at least four months in Israel participating in a long-term program are more likely to be engaged with their Judaism. The programs foster Jewish continuity even among those who weren’t engaged in Jewish life before their participation in Masa programs.
A recent Masa survey showed that 92% of alumni with children will raise their children Jewish, and eight-in-10 agree strongly with the statement, “Being Jewish is an important part of my life.”
