Jewish Life

Support for Local Jewish Programs

The Foundation maintains a continual relationship with congregations, agencies, and religious schools in Monroe and Ontario Counties and continues in its general commitment to the enhancement of Jewish life in the area.

Support for International Jewish Programs

The Foundation supports select programs internationally and in Israel as determined by the Board of Trustees. (Please note: No external requests for international funding will be considered.)

Farash Institute for Jewish Education

The Foundation has launched the Institute as a separate, stand-alone not-for-profit organization to provide new, unduplicated programs for Jewish education in the Rochester area. The Institute’s first initiatives offer scholarships for Jewish overnight camping and for travel to Israel.
