Microgrants Launched to Support Black-Jewish Relations
are pleased to announce the new Kovler Black-Jewish
Microgrant Program to promote quality programming and activities that enhance
Black-Jewish relations! Rabbi Saperstein noted in our press release: "Honoring
the history of the Reform Jewish engagement in the great civil rights struggles
of the 20th century and the Center's ongoing work to strengthen
Black-Jewish relations, we are very pleased to launch this program."
Your community can apply now for funds aimed at
developing links and common ground between African Americans and Jews. We hope

We hope that participants in such programs will help communities learn and grow together. The microgrant program will serve the Black and Jewish communities, and help develop activities that serve the broader public.
Applications are due for the initial cycle on April 15, 2011. Keep in mind that your proposal will be read by people who may not be familiar with terms commonly used in your community or area of programming. A full, clear explanation is important.
