Social activities 
Looking for something new to do? YAD social events are a welcome end to the daily grind and a great way to meet new people.
Educational programs 
YAD offers educational programs teach the ins-and-outs of volunteer involvement and community building. YAD members also have the opportunity to participate in the Jewish Federation of North America's Regional Conferences where young Jewish adults from across the country and around the world meet to discuss religious, cultural, social and international issues.

Hands-on volunteer opportunities 

Whether tutoring students in community day schools or volunteering in one of our partner agencies, Hamilton's young adults are making a profound difference in the lives of Jewish Hamiltonians.
Annual campaign activities 
Our community relies on the strength and spirit of the younger generation to continue to fulfill our teaching that Kol Yisrael arevim zeh ba-zeh, all Jews are responsible for one another. Our work would not be possible without the Federation’s annual Community Campaign – it’s the most effective way to reach out and help our fellow Jews right here at home and in 60 countries around the world. YAD members who make an annual contribution of $1,000 or more become members of the Ben-Gurion Society.
