This event is planned for a young adult audience by the Entwine New York City planning group.

JDC's Lehava Leadership Development Program consists of young Jewish adults from St. Petersburg, Russia who are part of a year-long intensive educational experience that provides innovative tools and knowledge to develop local communal initiatives. They will be visiting NYC for an "inside look" at Jewish New York.

 Watch this 3-minute video to get a closer look at last year's Inside NYC experience.
