Jewish Theological Seminary alumni have until December 31 to apply for a 2016 grant from the JTS Seeds of Innovation Project, which provides support for initiatives that cultivate Jewish engagement through the principles and ideals of Conservative Judaism. In three years, JTS Seeds of Innovation has distributed more than $100,000. A selection committee that includes JTS alumni and is chaired by the seminary’s executive vice chancellor allocates funding from the JTS Seeds of Innovation Project. Eligible programs can be synagogue or organization based or independent, and they must have clear-cut leadership goals intended to affect the Jewish community.
For an application and instructions go to jtsa.edu/seedsofinnovation.
