Nurturing a Network of Jewish Learning

The mission of JFGI is to promote the vision of a vibrant, engaged inclusive, and sustainable Jewish community.  To this end, JFGI is committed to investing resources to support and build momentum for the continued growth of a robust network of Jewish learning in our community.  Our investment in Jewish education focuses on:

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.
