Your contribution will support a growing network of bold leaders that is changing the status quo in Jewish life. UpStart provides them with the entrepreneurial tools and network they need to create a more just, vibrant, and inclusive future.
“As the COVID-19 crisis escalated in late March, suddenly UpStart was the only life preserver on our horizon. I was uncertain about SVIVAH’s future as a “new kid on the block,” among the historic institutions that also needed support. Knowing that UpStart is watching the larger communal landscape from a 20,000-foot perspective and that SVIVAH had a place in your vision, kept us fighting for our future. Your methods of Tzedakah – not just offering financial support, but teaching us to support ourselves – are values that sustain us.”
– Ariele Mortkowitz, Founding Director of SVIVAH
