What is LaunchBox?

LaunchBox is the winner of The Next Big Jewish Idea contest from The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. LaunchBox provides the tools to discover the relevance of Judaism in our lives and to foster Jewish connections by exploring, experiencing, and debating important, provocative questions.
It’s a whole lot in a small box!

What’s in the box?

BOX 1 | Life: What’s the Big Idea?
Geared toward young adults and families with teens.

What’s the meaning of life? How can we make our lives more meaningful? Is there an ultimate significance to what we do? What are the most important priorities in life? What does Judaism tell us about the afterlife? What is the legacy we want to leave behind? These are big questions, and we’ve got big answers.

LaunchBox is more than just a box with stuff in it — it’s a box with stuff in it and an interactive online experience. There is no specific order to your LaunchBox. Just dig in and begin your journey. Some of the pieces are meant to be experienced with others and some are for you to do on your own.
