During these uncertain times, with so much focus on a global pandemic, it can be challenging to develop creative ways to engage our communities with Israel. We are living in a “new normal” that demands novel approaches and actually has the potential to open new avenues for outreach, albeit virtually.

In the spirit of innovation and “start-up,” we invite members of our New England community ages 16 and up to develop Israel-related programs or activities that will spark interest in Israel and its people. The grant may be used to support either a new program or enhance an existing one. It’s our incentive to be inventive!

Please send us a short description not to exceed 200 words describing your idea, along with a budget. If your project is selected, we will award you a one-time grant up to $250 to execute the proposal. Awards will be determined no later than Sept. 30, 2020.

Apply here by Sept. 15.

For questions, please contact Ruth Kaplan, director of community relations, at community@boston.mfa.gov.il.
