Ma’alot: Taking Steps Towards Raising Israel Awareness
Synagogue Grants for Israel Programming
Jewish National Fund and Nefesh B’Nefesh are excited to continue the Ma’alot Grant Program to help synagogues with Israel programming. It is our hope that this program will strengthen the connections between synagogues, Jewish National Fund and Nefesh B’
Micro-grants in the amount of $750-$1250 will be available to synagogues (U.S. synagogues only). Programming can be geared to any population in your congregation.
We are now accepting applications for the 2020 Ma'alot synagogue grant year for programs that will take place from August 2020 - May 2021. Applications will be reviewed once a month by a committee and the decision will be conveyed via email. We have a limited pool of money to distribute and once that money has been awarded we will no longer accept new applications.
- All publicity and materials should bear the Jewish National Fund and Nefesh B’Nefesh logos.
- Regular communication with your Jewish National Fund Education team member and Nefesh B’Nefesh professionals is required.
- During your program, you must display
JewishNational Fund and Nefesh B’Nefesh materials.
- Upon completion of your program or activities, a summary report must be submitted (details will be provided in the grant award letter).
Applications for the 2020 Grant cycle will open in March.
