WRJWomen of Reform Judaism, through its Youth, Education, & Special Projects (YES) Fund, has awarded $338,500 in grants to 15 programs that will strengthen the Reform Movement and provide the tools necessary for religious, social, and educational growth in North America, in Israel, and around the world.

These grants to Reform Jewish institutions worldwide will help nurture Jewish youth engagement by supporting youth programs, including middle and high school youth programs in North America, PJ Library, camps in the former Soviet Union, post-college Jewish advocacy fellowships, Bat Mitzvah education for Israeli girls, and scholarships for girls to attend a science and technology summer camp. Other grants will provide scholarships for rabbinical students and Jewish professional programs in North America, Berlin, London, and Moscow. The “Women’s Choice Grant” will be an online competition to select a grantee from among numerous progressive or Reform Jewish programs.
