Grants

Becker Mini-Grants

Through the generosity of the Newton and Rochelle Becker Charitable Trust, Jewish LearningWorks is able to offer a limited number of grants of up to $1,000 to synagogues in the San Francisco Bay Area seeking to create new meaningful and relevant adult learning experiences, with an emphasis on reaching younger adults with children still at home. This grant does not fund family education programs in which adults and children learn together.

The Mickey Naggar Bourne Israel Scholarship Fund

The Mickey Naggar Bourne Israel Scholarship Fund, an initiative of Jewish LearningWorks, a non-profit educational institution serving the San Francisco-Bay Area Jewish community, was established in Mickey’s honor after she passed away from cancer in August 2011. Our mission is to encourage and support teens who wish to continue their Jewish education through Israel experiential programs with Jewish LearningWorks.

The Mickey Naggar Bourne Israel Scholarship provides up to $2,000 to teens who wish to travel to Israel through teen leadership programs.

Families

Empowering Jewish Parents

We believe that parents are their children’s ultimate teachers. With guidance, support and resources that meet families where they are, we empower parents with the knowledge and confidence they need to raise their children in joyful Jewish homes. We inspire and equip these parents to create memorable holiday celebrations, to incorporate Jewish traditions and values in their everyday lives, and to forge meaningful connections to the Jewish community.

Israel

We believe that a comprehensive and integrated approach to Israel Education is a critical component for a holistic Jewish education. For decades, educators have looked to Jewish LearningWorks (formerly the BJE) for knowledge, skills and tools to support their work in the classroom.

We are proud to partner with The iCenter for Jewish Education to offer three of our most acclaimed resources free of charge as a gift to educators across the country.

On The Map

On the Map teaches students how to think about the history, politics and culture of Israel with scores of maps as source material.

Money Talks

Money Talks provides a new lens through which the complicated history, politics and culture of Israel can be explored.

Poster Tales

Poster Tales / Krazot Mesaprot offers analysis, dialogue and more as expressed through posters — offering a year over year snapshot of Israel from a bird’s eye view. This acclaimed resource ended with Israel@60.

Apartment for Rent – Puppet Show

Apartment for Rent is a dynamic, inventive program introducing students to Israel’s most beloved children’s book written by renowned author Leah Goldberg.
