Review for Jewish Funds for Justice, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Jewish Funds for Justice has been at the forefront in supporting synagogues to embrace interfaith organizing for social justice. With creativity and innovation, they've helped spread the work using a variety of strategies, including linking leaders from around the country, creating accessible yet compelling documents to explain and lift up what the work is, grantmaking, convening national gatherings, and supporting/challenging people diverse segments of the Jewish world. Moreover, they've persisted in this work over a period of years, rather than moving on after the first flush of success. Their work has directly strengthened me and many others. I also appreciate their focus on economic justice, and their steady involvement in both the Jewish institutional world and in many diverse communities supporting self-determination.
