Videos that reach millions
Unpacked on YouTube
Unpacking the complex for today’s generation
About the project
The Unpacked YouTube channel reaches millions of people each year with videos about the history and culture of Judaism and Israel. YouTube is the largest video viewing platform and second largest search engine, where young adults spend hours per day. Young people use YouTube as an educational tool to help them make sense of their world.
With over 165,000 subscribers and 20 million views the Unpacked channel has the potential to reach millions of viewers monthly with new videos.
In order to continue the trajectory of growth and impact on today’s generation, we must produce new videos each week that engage, entertain, educate and reach new audiences.
