By Lisa Eisen

eJewish Philanthropy, March 29, 2011

Speaking at the Jewish Funders Network conference, the National Director of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation describes the foundation's work in the context of storytelling. She states that "From strengthening Jewish identity and young adult engagement to fostering a global Jewish service movement, inclusive communities and support for Israel through education and advocacy, we take these narratives and weave them together into a tapestry that reflects the message at the heart of our work: that in the search for meaning, for relevance, for spirituality, actively engaging in Jewish life is a path worth pursuing...Our foundation's work to shift the Jewish communal narrative is driven by the stories we hear from young people about their interests and needs. We are helping to build a global Jewish service movement because we heard from young people that making the world a better place is among their deepest held values."
