Established in 2005, Nachshon Minyan is a non-denominational congregation based in Encino. Its mission is to reach out to the disillusioned, unaffiliated, and unfulfilled and provide an experience that is educational, personal, and beautiful. It operates a religious school.


To support professional development, leadership development, and staff wellness strategies responding to the impacts of COVID-19 on synagogue clergy, staff, and lay leadership.

Nachshon Minyan is overjoyed and extremely grateful for the support we have been granted by The Foundation. With this grant, we will further our outreach through technology and virtual learning and enhance our connections within and outside of the Jewish community. The Foundation has given us the opportunity to extend our reach even more throughout the country and across the world via our new Nachshon-Line programs. Through these funds and this opportunity to grow, we will support the wellness and life/work balance of our staff as we focus on community building, engagement and preserving our rich Jewish History through storytelling.
