National Initiatives to Foster a Vibrant Jewish Community Funded
The Righteous Persons Foundation is dedicated to supporting efforts that build a diverse, just, and vibrant Jewish community in the United States. Steven Spielberg initially established the Foundation with his profits from the film, Schindler’s List. The Foundation has developed a particular focus on supporting national programs that foster Jewish arts, culture, and identity; invest in the next generation on issues of Jewish identity, community, and meaning; inspire a commitment to social justice; and promote understanding between Jews and those of other faiths and backgrounds. The next deadline for letters of inquiry is January 16, 2019. Guidelines for developing letters of inquiry are available on the Foundation’s website.
