Jewish Life Program

The Nathan Cummings Foundation

The Jewish Life program, reflecting the values of the prophet Micah, promotes the ethics and practice of social justice (Tzedec) and loving kindness (Chesed) as central values underlying contemporary Jewish life. This includes attention to the ethical and spiritual dimensions of Jewish thought, worship, study and practice, with a related focus on effective strategies for activating these values by strengthening the capacity of the community to work effectively for social and economic justice, both in the United States and Israel.
