New Diversity Grants Available from UJAFed-NY

UJANYIn an effort to promote yachad, or unity, across the New York City, Long Island, and Westchester Jewish communities, UJA-Federation of New York’s Jewish Peoplehood in New York (JPNY) Committee is committed to developing and pursuing initiatives that strengthen ties among its culturally and demographically diverse elements and promote an inclusive New York Jewish community. Recognizing the extensive diversity present within the New York Jewish community and the barriers that exist to engagement and inclusion, JPNY has identified a community need for organizations to create new engagement commitments and structures or to enhance already existing initiatives geared toward creating a more inclusive community where groups reflecting the racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of our Jewish community are welcomed and empowered. To help address this need, the Jewish Peoplehood of New York Committee of the Commission on the Jewish People is making available a limited number of grants to congregations, community centers, and other organizations and agencies that are committed to promoting meaningful engagement and inclusion among the diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural Jewish populations that together constitute the greater New York Jewish community.
