Since its inception the mission of the Jewish Council of North Central Florida has been two-fold:
1) support Jewish communities in Israel and around the world and
2) enhance Jewish life in our own community.
A portion of the funds donated by the community during our Annual Campaign has been designated by the JCNCF Board of Directors
annually to fund activities in North Central Florida.
JCNCF's Grants Committee will evaluate requests for funding. The committee will be looking for creative programs that benefit and engage the Jewish community – both those affiliated with a religious institution and those who are unaffiliated. Any Jewish institution in North Central Florida can submit a grant request. Entities whose program will bring a greater understanding of Jewish themes and issues may also apply. The goal of a grant must reflect one of the three areas specified in this passage from Pirkei Avot “The world is built on three things: Torah (Jewish law & learning), Avodah (service to G-d & Jewish community) and Gemilut Chassidim (acts of loving kindness)”. Send us you ideas and plans. Hopefully we can help with a grant from the Jewish Council of North Central Florida.
