Our Story

Club Z was born from the need to create an ongoing comprehensive and honest Israel education program for the unaffiliated Jewish teens in San Francisco Bay Area. Club Z raises modern day Zionists- active participants in today’s Jewish world, articulate and knowledgeable leaders.

OUR MISSION:

Our mission is to create a network of knowledgeable, articulate, and impassioned activists with a commitment to Zionism who advocate for Israel. We do that by providing a platform for today’s teens to grow into best people they can be and connecting them to the story of Israel and their place in that story.

OUR VISION:

Club Z envisions a network of leaders who embrace Zionism, are proud of their heritage, and are prepared to address the challenges facing their generation.

OUR VALUES:

Inclusivity

Club Z offers safe and welcoming opportunities for learning and growth to all Jewish teens regardless of background, denominational affiliation, disability, gender, sexual orientation and socio-economic status.

Zionism

Zionism is a movement to build and develop a Jewish homeland in its ancestral land, the land of Israel.

Jewish Identity

Club Z encourages Jewish teens to develop their own Jewish identities through connection to Israel.

Leadership

Empowering students to be confident advocates for themselves and Israel – both on campus and beyond.
