This past Monday was Slingshot Day in New York City. An infectious energy filled the 10th floor of the Time Warner Center as a mixture of Jewish professionals, young leaders and funders schmoozed with one another and participated in panel sessions, including one on philanthropy that featured CLSFF’s Director of Jewish Programs, Adam Simon.
We are so proud that many of our organizational partners and ROIers were among those selected for Slingshot’s 2010-11 list of the 50 most innovative organizations in Jewish life today. They include:
- Bible Raps (Matt Bar)
- Challah for Hunger (Eli Winkelman)
- G-dcast (Sarah Lefton and Matthue Roth)
- Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life
- Hillel’s Campus Entrepreneur and Senior Jewish Educator Initiative
- Institute for Curriculum Services
- Moishe House (David Cygielman, Alana Grabinsky and Rebecca Karp)
- Panim Institute of BBYO
- The PresenTense Group (Ariel Beery, Deborah Fishman and Aharon Horwitz)
We are especially excited that two of our grantees, JDub and Moishe House, received the special honor of being awarded grants (and flipcams!) from Slingshot!
Check out this video (filmed with a flipcam) of David Cygielman, CEO of Moishe House, after Moishe House got their grant:
