#JLife, our leading program for teens, has become one of the most successful programs for teens in the GTA. With the events of 2020, we had to rethink how we connect our teens to each other, to their roots and culture, and their own Israeli-Jewish journey. For more information about #JLife, contact Liraz Rolnitsky at LirazR@mnjcc.org or (416.924.6211 x321.

LOST TRIBE E SPORTS
Lost Tribe eSports is the next frontier of the Jewish community. They are changing the game on how Gen Z connects with each other and to Jewish life. The MNjcc is a proud partner.
Lost Tribe Esports is a global, year-round engagement initiative, connecting the next generation to Jewish life and identity through esports and the community of gaming. We partner with nearly 100 Jewish organizations to bring people together on an international level. We provide tournaments, community game nights, and live streams with a wide library of games.
Lost Tribe Esports designs and delivers Jewish educational, online gaming-based experiences for 8-12-year-olds. And we use the tools and media channels of online gaming to engage and re-engage teens and adults in Jewish life and community, as well as with opportunities to connect with Jewish institutions and Israel.
Connecting with a digital generation in the digital age, Lost Tribe esports is building the frontier of the Jewish community.
VISION AND VALUES: BUILD A BETTER WORLD.
Esports should always be fun, competitive, and social. But we believe they can also build community, open doors to professional and personal opportunities, and even help build a better world.
All our gaming opportunities are grounded in values of sportsmanship, self-respect, and positivity. We embed tzedakah into the gaming, with prize dollars donated to a charity of the winner’s choice. So when you game with Lost Tribe, you’re playing not only for fun and for bragging rights, but also to make a difference.

Lost Tribe Esports is committed to facilitating a safe space for Jewish teens and adults to game. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any bullying and harassment, and work to make sure our tournaments and communications channels are welcoming and respectful places for ALL our gamers, regardless of background, gender, and ability.
