Jewish Peoplehood Hub Launched

hubgreen2Yesterday, at The Jewish Federations of North America 2009 GA, the NADAV Fund, in partnership with UJA-Federation of New York and the Jewish Agency for Israel, launched the Jewish Peoplehood Hub (JPH).

This groundbreaking project aims to promote activities that strengthen collective Jewish identity and is being developed in a unique partnership between the world’s largest federation, a private foundation and a major Jewish NGO.

The Jewish Peoplehood Hub (JPH) will serve as a center for discourse, knowledge dissemination and program development on the subject of Jewish Peoplehood. It will operate as a global think tank and project lab for enhancing commitment to this issue among world Jewry. The JPH will focus on influencers – educators, younger lay and professional leaders and academics – in order to magnify its impact.

The JPH will operate out of the Jewish Agency’s educational campus in Kiryat Moriah, Jerusalem. It will be headed by Yonatan Ariel and Dr. Shlomo Ravid and have an initial annual budget of $600,000.
