This programme (formerly Jewish Education) aims to ensure that Jewish communities are equipped to engage more Jews with Jewish life and learning.

This might include education, leadership development, community engagement and knowledge of local Jewish heritage. We support in the following ways:

  • Investing in People: We support professional development projects that enhance the knowledge and skills of the key personnel who lead Jewish learning and communal engagement in their communities.
  • Integrating Jewish Heritage: We encourage the use of local heritage resources, including museums and libraries, as an effective tool for creative educational programmes.
  • Enhancing the Camp Experience: We support the development of the skills and knowledge of camp leaders as well as the enhancement of Jewish education at camp and helping communities achieve better Jewish educational outcomes.
  • Shaping the Future: We support Jewish communities to engage the next generation of activists.

Two of our Foundation Initiatives complement this grant programme and applicants are invited to visit their websites to find out more information on professional development, training opportunities and educational resources:

  • Gesher L’Europa– an initiative of the National Library of Israel, creating opportunities for people working within Jewish settings to connect with the NLI and engage with its extensive collections, educational resources and online programming. Opportunities to partner with the NLI to help promote its resources and online programming within European Jewish communities are in development stages.
  • Yesod Europe invests in the learning, development and connection of Europe’s Jewish community professionals, including Jewish educators, who work daily in service of their communities.
