Building Capacity, Community, and Bridges through Education

Nurturing a Network of Jewish Learning 

The mission of JFGI is to promote the vision of a vibrant, engaged, inclusive, and sustainable Jewish community.  We are committed to investing resources to support a robust network of Jewish learning in our community through:

 

CAPACITY BUILDING

Aims to strengthen the quality and professionalism of educational leaders and programs in our community through: Professional Development Programs, JFGI Education Grants, and Leadership Development Opportunities.

COMMUNITY BUILDING

Aims to optimize educational experiences as a tool to strengthen community ties through: Youth Programming, Supporting Diversity, and Community Learning Programs

BRIDGE BUILDING

Aims to utilize education as a mechanism for building bridges with others outside of the Jewish community through: Holocaust Education, Programming in Schools, and Library Outreach Programming.

It's hard to capture the comprehensive impact of Jewish learning experiences. These infographics reflect a snapshot of pieces of the JFGI Education Department's work. If you would like to hear more about how we are nurturing a network of Jewish learning in the Greater Indianapolis Metropolitan Area, please contact Nina Price, Director of Jewish Education Initiatives, at nprice@jfgi.org.
