Jews of Color Field Building Initiative

“U.S.-based Jewish racial diversity is not a dilemma or a challenge to be solved. It’s simply a fact,” writes Ilana Kaufman, a community relations professional in Berkeley. “The challenge to be solved is how to successfully build the bridges, pathways and highways needed to…connect together the diversity of our community.”

The Fund for Jews of Color Field Building has already given grants to projects such as Bend the Arc, Dimensions, Jews in All Hues, The Jewish Multiracial Network and JewV’Nation Fellowship Jews of Color Cohort.
