Mission

Celebrating Excellence and Innovation in Jewish Education

The Covenant Foundation recognizes the diversity of strengths within the field of Jewish education in North America, across all denominations and settings.

This is My Covenant with you… the words which I have put into your mouth shall not depart from you, not from your children, not from your children’s children henceforth and forever.”

Isaiah 59:21

By honoring outstanding Jewish educators and supporting creative approaches to programming, the Foundation works to strengthen educational endeavors that perpetuate the identity, continuity and heritage of the Jewish people.

The Foundation believes those with the creativity and passion to be catalysts for change and innovation in Jewish education are worthy of recognition and support. Consequently, the Foundation accepts unsolicited letters of inquiry.
