I support UpStart because of its unwavering commitment to fostering innovative and inclusive avenues for Jewish engagement. UpStart empowers visionary leaders, organizations, and individuals within our community to actively choose and shape new paths of engagement and impact. The tools, capital and coaching provided by UpStart to entrepreneurs and their organizations have a ripple effect on the greater Jewish community by connecting more people and by meeting varied needs. UpStart’s dedication to supporting these visionaries assures me that Judaism will thrive in unforeseen and diverse ways.
I cannot overstate the urgency of needs in our community. In a world grappling with loneliness and the increased rise of global antisemitism, UpStart and its partners respond with opportunities for communal connection. By supporting exceptional entrepreneurs and their ventures including At the Well, Tivnu, A Wider Bridge, Jewish Plays Project, and Maccabi Sports Camp through UpStart, I believe we are collectively shaping the future of Jewish continuity.
Please join me in supporting this vital and transformative organization.
