New RRC Entrepreneurial Grants Spur Innovative Jewish Initiatives

RRC_signRRC has created the Auerbach Entrepreneurial Grant Program and awarded its first five grants. The initiative is funded by the Auerbach Foundation Fund, which is under the auspices of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford.

The program aims to spur bold experiments that seek to reconstruct Jewish experience and engagement for the 21st century. The grants are for pilot projects for Jewish living and engagement that have the potential to grow and be replicated. Current rabbinical students and recent graduates (from 2014 or later) are eligible.

Additional details, plus descriptions of projects by the first recipients can be found on the RRC website.
