We are the largest funder of Jewish programs in Columbus, serving and enriching our community from birth to senior living. With each thing we do we aspire to unite our community. By working to engage, include and secure each individual, we’re building the best Jewish future in Columbus.
PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY
so we can live freely as Jews
By increasing programming and training, we empower our community to fight against antisemitism – everyone should feel safe at Jewish schools, synagogues and institutions. Our partnerships with local law enforcement and our advocacy work to secure security funding offer another layer of protection against antisemitic threats. Help us keep our community safe.
CREATE INCLUSIVE SPACES
We established and fully funded the Jewish Community Disabilities Inclusion Director, in partnership with the JCC, building an inclusive Jewish community for children of all abilities. Help us provide every child with access to Jewish experiences and education.
INSTILL JEWISH PRIDE
in our kids
Studies prove that overnight Jewish camp instills Jewish pride and fosters deep attachments to the Jewish community. This year, we sent 120+ kids to camp and we know costs keep increasing. Your support continues to make this funding possible.
ASSIST JEWS IN NEED
across the globe
From Columbus to Ukraine and from South America to Israel, Jews face poverty, persecution and uncertainty. Our local Holocaust Survivors Initiative and partnerships with international organizations help our fellow Jews across the globe – the need still is great.
CULTIVATE JEWISH LEADERSHIP
for the next generation
Young Jewish Columbus‘ (YJC) exciting programming engages our under-40 community members, and Leadership JewishColumbus (LJC) prepares them to lead. Already, 100% of our 30 participants in Cohort No. 1 have been placed on agency, synagogue and JewishColumbus boards and committees. Join us for a YJC event and you’ll understand the power of our growing community. To learn more, contact Michael Goldman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
