What Matters to Us

Our vision for achieving more just and inclusive societies starts within our organization, and we strive to build a team culture rooted in trust and clarity. Our work is guided by our core values, founded on the Jewish commitment to pursue justice (tzedek), repair the world (tikkun olam) and treat all people with civility and humanity (derekh eretz). We believe in:

Equity

We seek to create a society that is more equitable, inclusive and respectful of all people. We work with partners from diverse backgrounds, faiths, perspectives and orientations to challenge structural inequity and bias and address the needs of marginalized communities in the US and Israel.

Impact

We work toward real change by investing in organizations and leaders able to meaningfully address entrenched challenges and complex problems. We recognize change takes time and base our investments in on-the-ground realities and evidence about what works.

Optimism

We see possibility rather than impossibility in our work. We invest in our relationships and honor the milestones on the road to achieving meaningful change. We bring compassion to our work and a commitment to learning from our successes and failures.

Humility

We recognize our grantees and partners face incredible challenges every day, and no one has all the answers. We strive to listen deeply, engage with and learn from diverse perspectives, and act respectfully, from a place of purpose, not ego.

Collaboration

We believe we can go further by working together to generate solutions. We actively collaborate and build partnerships with grantees, funders and the people we serve. We constantly seek to improve and proactively share what we learn, with our partners and the fields in which we work.
