Since 1999, NCSY -- the youth movement of the Orthodox Union -- has taken Jewish teenagers from the United States and Canada on heavily subsidized educational trips to Israel under the rubric of The Anne Samson z'l Jerusalem Journey (TJJ). In recent years, TJJ has experienced increased participation -- and investment -- such that NCSY and OU leadership commissioned this research, centering on a survey of past TJJ participants, of whom there are 1,784 since the program's inception in 2007. TJJ achieves impressive results in moving young people from nonobservant homes to undertake - for the first time - several features of traditional religious commitment and observance.
