GRANT PURPOSE

Develop Jewish educational and entertaining programs for the Virtual JLA website to engage viewers in new and creative ways and to showcase content from Southern California’s leading Jewish institutions.

We greatly value the support and vote of confidence The Foundation has given us over the years. We’re hoping that this major grant and The Foundation’s sustained best efforts and support will help us leverage this gift into future funding for Virtual JLA so that we can reach out to Jews and non-Jews of all ages and backgrounds throughout Southern California, across the country and around the world.
