Jewish Life Grants


Students at Noe Middle participate in Kentucky Center for the Arts’ arts-based holocaust education program, funded by JHFE.

Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence provides funding opportunities to reduce barriers for Jewish individuals and their families to engage in Jewish life, and to flourish as individuals and members of a larger community.

Requests for funding should align to one or more of our strategic priorities:

  • Spiritual, cultural, and social programs to grow individuals’ Jewish identity and sense of belonging and connection to the Jewish community
  • Programs and initiatives that strengthen Jewish organizations
  • Programs in the broader community that celebrate and build awareness of Jewish culture, heritage, history, and contributions
