In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and given the world-wide travel restrictions, the Foundation offers this new grant category to enable Jewish heritage professionals to take an online course in Hebrew or any Jewish language (e.g. Yiddish, Judeo-Spanish). This opportunity is open to professionals working in a Jewish heritage institution (museum, library, archive, NGO, etc.) to enable them to take an online course in a Jewish language that can help them grow in their professional capacity. The course must be administered by an institution, whether university, community centre or language school, and must deliver a certificate of attendance. Grants up to £2000 are available to cover tuition to be paid directly to the language school upon receipt of an invoice, or as reimbursement upon presentation of a payment receipt.
Applications can be submitted by 30 September, 30 November 2020, 28 February 2021, 30 April 2021 and 30 June 2021.
If you work professionally in a Jewish organization, including (but not limited to) youth organizations, Jewish Community Centres (JCCs), synagogues, welfare and cultural organizations and are interested in learning Hebrew or other Jewish skills and knowledge for your work, you might be eligible to apply to Yesod’s Professional Development Fund.
