WHAT IS YESOD’S PURPOSE?
Yesod is dedicated to strengthening the future of Jewish Europe by investing in key individual Jewish community professionals and educators to create sustainable and meaningful European Jewish community life. They believe that individuals who are skilled, connected, valued and are inspired by Jewish values as professionals and educators will have the greatest potential for impact.
Through their founding partners’ collective experience and conversations in the field, Yesod identified a need to increase the scope of opportunities for professional development and lifelong Jewish learning – for these individuals.
WHO IS YESOD?
Yesod was created by three organisations – the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe (RFHE) and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation (CLSFF) – committed to supporting and strengthening European Jewish communities. Together they share the vision of a vibrant, meaningful, Jewish life comprised of strong communities driven by inspired and engaged individuals.See more
