About Presentense Magazine:

As a trans denominational and international marketplace of ideas, PresenTense seeks to invigorate Hebrew culture by providing a nurturing environment where Jewish youth will be able to explore and enrich their Jewish identity within a civilizational framework. In doing so, PresenTense seeks to add value to Jewish life around the world by strengthening the ties that bind members of the Jewish community across ideological and religious divides, in order to advocate and articulate the values and ethics we hold to be central to Hebrew culture: mutual responsibility, the obligation to pursue social justice, self-determination and the value of preserving the distinctive wisdom of a People?s tradition.

Our print magazine features new, views, reviews, photography and artwork by young Jews about Jewish life in the here and now; our online forum will showcase shorter articles with regular updates about local events; and our salons and peer-led discussions across the country provide opportunities for young Jews to engage with those issues that seize our community in the present.
