Tarbuton Featured in eJewishPhilanthropy!

We are so happy to share that Federation Innovation Grant recipient Tarbuton recently received international coverage in the ubiquitous eJewishPhilanthropy.

Tarbuton, the Israeli Cultural Center founded by the tenacious Jennie Starr of San Diego, provides subsidies for a dozen students to attend educational programs, with the goal of increasing cultural understanding between Israelis and Diaspora-born Jews.

Federation's investment in community innovation aims to strengthen Jewish caring and to increase Jewish engagement, by supporting and incubating amazing ideas like Jennie's Tarbuton. This year Federation provided a total of $100,000 in micro-grant funding, ranging from $2,500 to $10,000, to help 16 mostly small and emerging community organizations find new and effective ways to reach Jews at different stages of their lives and to help them deepen their Jewish journeys.

Congratulations to Jennie and Tarbuton - together, we do extraordinary things!
