The Problem We're Solving
Young Jewish couples either forgo professional or graduate school to get married or start a family, or pursue further education but push off getting married or starting a family due to:
Exorbitant long-term school loans
No financial support from immediate family members
First generation Americans and college graduates
Kochvei HaShamayim was founded to be the Jewish community's response to this problem, providing the social infrastructure to support young couples by running programs and initiatives that allow them to realize both their family and career goals. Check out our Initiatives page for more information!
