The Lappin Foundation is planning to quantify the impact of its Youth to Israel Adventure on Jewish identity. The success of the program interests Jewish communities across the country. The foundation needs to contact at least 75 percent of Y2I alumni from 1971 to 2007. Anyone with information should send names and emails of people they know who participated in Y2I, aka LGI, or ask them to send the information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 978-740-4410. If they know which year they participated, that would also be helpful. The foundation also needs names and emails of alumni of Israel teen trips who received a subsidy from the Federation from 1971 to 1988 for any teen Israel experience, including USY, NEFTY, Young Judaea and others, since they will be included in the study. Contact Evan Coltin at the number and address given above.
