The objective of the Meetings of Generations organized by JAFI (the Jewish Agency for Israel – Ha Sochnut Ha Yehudit L'Eretz Yisra'el) and the JDC-MAZS Foundation is to allow Holocaust survivors who were born in 1941 or earlier and have never visited Israel to meet with young Jewish people as part of a regular program. The program calls for eight meetings over eight months in which the elders share their memories and personal stories to ensure that the Shoah is never forgotten. In turn, the young people, who have participated in Taglit-Birthright Israel or have traveled to Israel in some other way, describe Israel to the senior citizens. At the end of the program the two groups, old and young, travel to Israel together. The eight meetings on which the program is founded require active participation, dialogue, and the sharing of memories with the youngsters. Active participation is a condition for joining the trip to Israel that concludes the program.
