Jewish New Media Fund Grants Announced

The Jewish New Media Innovation Fund, a pilot program of the Jim Joseph, Righteous Persons, and Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family foundations, announced today the winners of their first grants — and we’re ecstatic to congratulate Kveller.com, one of nine recipients!

Here’s what they said:

Kveller.com is the first and only Jewish parenting website aimed at parents from across the Jewish  religious spectrum, with special attention paid to interfaith families and the less-affiliated. From its popular Jewish Baby Name Bank to its prolific bloggers, Kveller has content reflecting all types of Jewish families: observant, interfaith, queer, divorced and more. It also connects parents to local organizations  and events, including piloting online communities with calendars of events and lists of resources, as well  as local Facebook groups.

For full details, and the other winners (including my favorite animated Torah series ever), here’s EJewishPhilanthropy’s full post on the subject:
