The Jewish Education Project
Leveraging the success and 100 year legacy of the Board of Jewish Education New York-SAJES, The Jewish Education Project pioneers new approaches in Jewish education for every age. We recognize that as society changes, the way we educate must adapt right along with it. We believe that every Jewish family should have a path to affordable, accessible, and inspiring Jewish education for their children. We connect forward-thinking educators to powerful ideas and resources so we can create new models that change how, what, and where people learn. Together with our partners, we’re transforming Jewish education for today’s ever-changing world and helping to shape the future of the Jewish people.
The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, Inc. (JCRC-NY) is the voice of and interactive network for metropolitan New York’s Jewish community. The JCRC-NY represents the Jewish community to governmental officials, other ethnic and religious communities, as well as the news media. The JCRC-NY works with local Jewish organizations to build a stronger New York Jewish community, and partners with other communities to ensure the continuing vitality of the metropolitan area.
Salute to Israel Parade
The Salute to Israel Parade, a project of the JCRC-NY, is the world’s largest public celebration of Israel and its people in the world. A major vehicle for Zionist expression, the Parade enables communities to come together in a non-partisan, apolitical show of unity with our brothers and sisters in Israel. In 2011, an expected one million spectators will gather at the Salute to Israel Parade to watch tens of thousands of marchers proceed up Fifth Avenue in Manhattan along with American and Israeli community leaders and dignitaries, celebrities, floats and marching bands. This exciting event attracts world-wide press and media coverage.
