Study Subject :  Any subject

Employer :  The Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center

Level :  Any level

The Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center is excited to announce the launch of a second cohort of the Jewish Greening Fellowship. With this fellowship, you’ll receive training and grant support to make your JCC, camp, synagogue or day school a green leader.

This program is only open to organizations in UJA-Federation of New York’s catchment area (five boroughs, Westchester and Long Island).

The Jewish Greening Fellowship aims to reduce the environmental footprints of Jewish institutions and places caring for the environment high on the agenda of every participating organization.

The goal is to generate a meaningful response to global climate change by upgrading the sustainable practices of our institutions while strengthening Jewish life.

This intensive program provides training, grants totaling $15,000 to $20,000 and organizational support to 20 Jewish institutions to make their facilities more efficient and sustainable while raising awareness of environmental issues and engaging members and constituents.

The program is generously funded by UJA-Federation of New York and is part of a larger effort to address global climate change by providing grants and educational opportunities.
