By investing in promising Jewish education grant initiatives, the foundation fosters compelling, effective Jewish learning experiences for youth and young adults in the United States.  Jim Joseph was a dedicated Jewish philanthropist whose passion charted the mission of the foundation that bears his name. He believed that focusing on young people and instilling in them pride in their heritage was the best way to preserve a strong Jewish faith and to ensure a successful future for the Jewish people.  The foundation seeks to make an indelible impact on the lives of young Jews, recognizing that dynamic Jewish learning takes place in a multitude of settings. Since 2006, the foundation has partnered with effective organizations and awarded grants to engage, educate and inspire young Jewish minds to discover the joy of living vibrant Jewish lives.
