Strengthening Jewish Life

DEEPENING
JEWISH IDENTITY

We’re reimagining Jewish life in all its manifestations. People choose different paths on their Jewish journeys. That’s why we support options. Innovation. And access.
From a program that offers families free Jewish-themed books to one that connects young people over Shabbat meals, transforming strangers into friends. Specialty Jewish summer camps that embed Jewish values into new adventures. Trips to Israel so teens and college students can learn about their heritage and explore the complexity of Israeli society today.
Whether in New York, Israel, or the former Soviet Union, we’re creating gateways for Jews of all ages and all backgrounds. This is where Jewish life in all its forms takes root — and thrives.
