JHP is a unique campus outreach organization that began on the University of Pennsylvania campus five years ago. The goal of JHP is to help students provide peer-to-peer based Jewish identity programming geared towards unaffiliated students. The programs are designed to inspire students to celebrate their heritage and instill a sense of identity and pride in their religion. JHP offers leadership training and mentoring opportunities with Jewish professionals from a variety of fields. Other activities include Shabbat dinners, historical programs, and holiday celebrations. The program also offers a number of retreats and trips, including an annual Israel excursion.
