Lappin Foundation’s primary service area includes the North Shore, Merrimack Valley and Greater Boston area of Massachusetts. Our mission is enhancing Jewish identity across generations.  We accomplish our mission with exciting, FREE programs for children, teens and adults including: Youth to Israel Adventure (Y2I); PJ Library and PJ Our Way; Interfaith Outreach; Introduction to Judaism;  Jewish film screenings, book groups, and speakers on current events; and Jewish educational resource materials.


What people are saying about Lappin Foundation programs

Y2I does not only have the power to affect  and change American teens’  lives, but it also possesses the ability to affect  and change the entire world, one story and point of view at a time.

Rekindle Shabbat is a wonderful opportunity to share Shabbat with your own family while making memories and lasting relationships with another family.
