Foundations: Affecting Change in the Landscape of Jewish Education

By Harlene W. Appelman

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), Fall 2007

The author, executive director of the Covenant Foundation, describes the changing landscape of Jewish education over the past twenty years, which has come as a result of a generation of successful and philanthropic Jewish citizens having taken a serious interest in Jewish education and identity-building. She looks at the role a foundation can play and how it can productively help nurture the field of Jewish education. She argues that foundations sit at a knowledge nexus point: knowing what has been accomplished and having a bird’s eye view of the newest ideas. Their challenge is how best to identify important contributions to the field, grow them, and share that knowledge in a productive and responsible manner.
