In March of 2020, as the pandemic took hold of our local communities and safer-at-home orders were issued, American Jewish University shifted the delivery of our adult education and community programming to digital formats. Dedicated to providing Jewish learning to our communities, AJU understood the importance of showcasing original content that was not only easily accessible, but also fostered a sense of connection amidst the isolation that many faced.
The result was B’Yachad Together: Spirited by American Jewish University. This immersive and experiential digital learning platform elevates the voices and captures insights of guest speakers and AJU faculty, while advancing ideas, sparking dialogue, and igniting debate.
Nearly a year later, the B’Yachad Together program has not only grown and matured, extending to all corners of the country and globe, but has reinvented itself as Maven. We’re currently accessed in all 50 states, as well as 45 countries, with an ever-expanding footprint in both name and vision. Today, we welcome you to continue this journey with us as we expand our brand, and connection with AJU’s legacy programs in the Whizin Center for Continuing Education and at Arts @ AJU. We invite you to become a Maven.
We aim to build community and bring Jewish wisdom to the world in the hopes of helping people better understand themselves, their community, and the world around them. We’re here to inspire everyone.
Thank you for sharing this journey.
