Review for Institute of Southern Jewish Life, Jackson, MS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization does an amazing job of serving Jewish communities -- especially isolated Jewish communities -- all over the South. They are committed to documenting and honoring the Southern Jewish experience, to providing rabbinic support to geographically "undesirable" areas, and to ensuring that the Jewish children in these communities receive a high-quality Jewish education. Their annual education conference is an amazing and inspiring gathering of hundreds of Jewish teachers and educators from around the South.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...seeing the magic that happens when they send an education fellow to work with a small Southern Jewish community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

...they are true professionals, led by a visionary Jewish communal professional (Macy B. Hart).

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

...young, enthusiastic, energetic, and deeply dedicated to the organization's vision.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...do an even better job of making a profound difference in the lives of Jews living across the South.
