SixPoints: Strengthening Jewish Life in Toronto

Young Leaders Spearhead Launch of New Philanthropy Fund

It’s one thing to be charitable, but it’s another thing to actually get an opportunity to understand community needs and create a meaningful impact.

That’s exactly what businessmen Jonathan Bloomberg, Noah Godfrey and Sam Mizrahi are doing. And the trio, who are chairing UJA Federation’s SixPoints Jewish Venture Philanthropy Fund, have successfully encouraged their contemporaries to join them in learning about Jewish philanthropy and making an impact on our community.

Started this past winter, SixPoints, which recently saw the launch of its website ( featuring its request for proposals, is comprised of some of our community’s most visionary and committed young leaders, all of whom have pooled their financial resources and business planning skills to fund and support new and innovative programs that are consistent with Jewish values, especially that of tikkun olam, “repairing the world.”
