We ground our philanthropic vision in our commitment to the pursuit of justice (tzedek), repairing the world (tikkun olam), treating all people with civility and humanity (derekh eretz) and building inclusive communities. These values shape the beliefs that inform our investments and define how we approach our work. We believe in... Equity: We seek to create a society that is more equitable, inclusive and respectful of all people. We work with partners from diverse backgrounds, faiths, perspectives and orientations to challenge structural inequity and bias and to address the needs of marginalized communities in the US and Israel. Impact: We work toward real change by investing in organizations and leaders able to meaningfully address entrenched challenges and complex problems. We recognize change takes time and base our investments in on-the-ground realities and evidence about what works. Optimism: We see possibility rather than impossibility in our work. We invest in our relationships and honor the milestones on the road to achieving meaningful change. We bring compassion to our work and a commitment to learning from our successes and failures. Humility: We recognize our grantees and partners face incredible challenges every day, and no one has all the answers. We strive to listen deeply, to engage with and learn from diverse perspectives and to act respectfully, from a place of purpose, not ego. Collaboration: We believe we can go further by working together to generate solutions. We actively collaborate and build partnerships with grantees, funders and the people we serve. We constantly seek to improve and proactively share what we learn, with our partners and the fields in which we work. As a Foundation, we live by the words of a great Jewish sage, who said: While no one person is obligated to complete the task of tikkun olam (repairing the world), neither is anyone free to desist from it.
