Ma'alot: Taking Steps Towards Raising Israel Awareness


Jewish National Fund and Nefesh B’Nefesh are offering micro-grants for synagogue Israel programming for the 2022 grant cycle. Grants are available for programs that will take place between July 2022 and June 2023. This is a great opportunity for your congregation and its membership to receive funds for increasing Israel programming in your community. Please complete this form as completely as possible.

The Ma’alot Microgrant Review Committee meets periodically to review all applications for the grant. The goal of the grants is to strengthen connections between synagogues and Israel, through partnership with JNF-USA and Nefesh B’Nefesh. We encourage you to develop creative programs that will foster a meaningful relationship between any population in your community with the State of Israel. Please read the following suggestions/guidance below to ensure a successful application.

We hope this additional guidance will help you prepare grant applications that will be approved by the committee. As this is a competitive grant with a limited pool of money, only serious applications for fully developed programs that can demonstrate successful outcomes for strengthening ties with Israel and the partnering agencies will be considered.
