Learn About Our Work

Jewish lives today are born of inspiration, not obligation. So how do we inspire? By empowering young Jews to engage in meaningful Jewish experiences, build inclusive Jewish communities, connect to the State of Israel and repair the world.

We are invested in ensuring a bright future for a diverse, dynamic, inclusive Jewish people deeply connected to Israel and committed to making the world a better place.

To us, “Jewish” is neither a static nor insular term. While a set of core values underpins Jewish traditions, the Jewish community is a rich and constantly expanding tapestry of experiences, identities and ideas.

The Secret Sauce: Grantmaking

We introduced the many things other than money that giving circles are also about – including engagement, education, and community-building; and we walked through some of the initial steps to get a giving circle off the ground. Now we turn to the “secret sauce” of the giving circle experience: the grantmaking. This is the moment when members will gain an incomparable education in both philanthropy and the issues being addressed by the circle’s grantmaking.

Creating a Leadership Development Playlist

In today’s marketplace, we believe a “one-size-fits-all” approach to leadership development does not cut it. Instead, we provide leaders with access to a suite of diverse experiences, and enable individuals to select the opportunities that best meet their interests and professional needs. Our model, in this regard, is akin to Spotify: We offer a catalogue of opportunities, and each individual builds a personal playlist. Our catalogue remains open and accessible for the long-term, even as individuals change jobs, locations, and sectors.
