Microfunding for Young Adults

Do you have an exciting idea to help connect young adults to Jewish life? Noticing a gap in communal offerings and think you can help fill the void? Realize your programmatic potential with up to $200 from CJP's Microfunding for Young Adults! No concept is too small: We want to empower you to design and implement inspiring programs and events on your terms.  


  • Programs and events must include five or more young adults (20- and 30-somethings) 
  • Applications are reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis 
  • Your event/project/program should touch on some aspect of Jewish life. Example ideas (and please – get creative!): 
    • Shabbat dinner 
    • Cooking classes 
    • Holiday parties (Sukkot, Hanukkah, etc.) 
    • Wine and paint night
