The Hadassah Foundation announced 13 mini-grants for organizations serving Jewish young people in 11 states.
The grants are in honor of Hadassah’s 13 years of grant making and will fund new or expanded programming that promotes the physical, spiritual and emotional well-being of Jewish girls and young women.
Recipients of the $500 mini-grants include organizations from all major Jewish denominations, synagogues, day schools, Hillels, a community-based organization doing outreach to people in their 20s, an after-school high school program and a local board of Jewish education.
“We are delighted that this mini-grant program will enable so many youth-serving organizations in the Jewish community to create feminist-oriented programming,” Donna Gerson, Hadassah Foundation chair, said in a statement. “This program enables us to reach many new communities that normally wouldn’t be touched by the Hadassah Foundation.”
The following organizations have received Bat Mitzvah Year Mini-Grants: Shearim Torah High School for Girls, Scottsdale, Ariz.; Bureau of Jewish Education, San Francisco; Temple Kol Tikvah, Woodland Hills, Calif.; Hillel Foundation at Indiana University, Bloomington, Ind.; Congregation Agudath Achim, Taunton, Mass.; Temple Beth El, Traverse City, Mich.; Next Dor STL, St. Louis; Congregation Agudath Israel, Caldwell, N.J.; Solomon Schechter School of Queens, N.Y; Chapel Hill Kehillah Synagogue, Chapel Hill, N.C.; Hillel at Ohio University, Athens, Ohio; B’nai B’rith Youth Organization, Ohio Northern Region, Beachwood, Ohio; and The Jewish Community High School of Gratz College, Melrose Park, Pa.
