Jewish Social Action Month (JSAM) is a global initiative that takes place during the Hebrew month of Cheshvan. This year, JSAM will take place from Tuesday, October 13 - Wednesday, November 11, 2015. As part of JSAM, UJA-Federation of New York’s Commission on the Jewish People (COJP) is seeking to fund Jewish social-action and community service projects that bring together volunteers from different organizations in the New York metropolitan area.
We aim to promote service as an important and unifying feature of Jewish communal culture and to use social action and Jewish service learning as vehicles for building bridges between groups and diverse segments of the New York Jewish community. We wish to have an impact on not only beneficiaries of this important service, but also the new and strengthened connections between the communities collaborating to offer this service.
