Foundation for Jewish Camp receives $3.3 million jobs grant
The Foundation for Jewish Camp has received a $3.3 million grant for a new program to create jobs for Jewish educators.
The Nadiv program will fund the creation of three new educator positions for Reform nonprofit Jewish overnight camps and Jewish day or synagogue schools, plus the other positions shared between community camps and day or synagogue schools.
The Jim Joseph and Avi Chai foundations are funding the pilot initiative, which was was designed with the Union for Reform Judaism.
“Here is an extraordinary opportunity to share and transmit the ‘magic’ of camp into congregational and day school settings,” said Paul Reichenbach, the URJ’s director of camping and Israel programs, in a statement.
