Jewish Jumpstart is an incentive grant program for Jewish individuals and families who are not yet members at an Ottawa synagogue or the Soloway Jewish Community Centre. This two-year membership discount makes belonging possible for more people in our community.
It is a welcoming grant that is not based on financial need. It’s Jewish Federation of Ottawa’s way of saying “try us, you’ll like us.” It’s time you joined already!
This program begins in June 2019 and is part of the Federation’s vision for the Jewish Superhighway: a place where no one is left behind.
Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t wait to apply! Financial need is not considered in the application. However, Jewish Federation of Ottawa verifies applications with participating organizations to ensure eligibility and you will be asked if you agree to provide your personal information before applying. Applicants can select the partner synagogue of their choice, and learn more about the synagogues and SJCC before applying.
