Bolstering Community Among Young Adults

We’re all about building community! CJP recently awarded a total of $65,500 in Young Adult Community Impact Grants to nine organizations to help them reduce social isolation and bolster community among young adults. Among the recipients are Asiyah Jewish Community, a spiritual community for young adults in Cambridge and Somerville that plans to use the funding to add a program associate and rabbinic intern so they can grow and Beantown Jewish Gardens, a community organization that connects Jewish text and culture with the environment and food sustainability that plans to use the grant to support their general operations and improve their Jewish Volunteer Gardening Brigade. Funding also went to Yachad, The Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action, Jookender, Mayyim Hayyim, MIT Hillel, Tobin Bridge Chabad, and Trybal Gatherings.
