The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia awards grants each year to local Jewish organizations, supporting them in bringing Israeli culture to our communities in creative and engaging ways. A total of 24 grants were awarded to 18 organizations for the available funds of approximately $45,000. The fund’s purpose is to provide grants for programs that strengthen Israel engagement via cultural programming. Funds can be used to bring in Israeli performers and artists and/or to create Israel-themed programs that include music, film, arts, dance, literature, lectures, theater, etc. that are open to the community and demonstrate artistic, educational and/or cultural value for the community.
Grant applications from local synagogues and Jewish agencies are accepted during the summer and funding decisions are made by a volunteer committee. Organizations can apply for up to $5,000 in support.
