Roadmap to Reconcilation
In February 2023, the RJCC announced that we were offering our Reform congregations the opportunity to apply for funding from the generous WRJ Yes Fund grant that we were awarded to foster local Jewish-Indigenous relationships. Our program “Roadmap to Reconciliation” will run for the remainder of 2023.
The program was inspired by the success of recent Jewish/Indigenous programs hosted by congregations in Ottawa and Toronto. he RJCC received a Women of Reform Judaism YES Grant for $10,000 and matched that amount from its own coffers, for a total of $20,000 to be distributed as sub-grants to congregations. To be considered for a sub-grant, congregations were asked to conceive and pitch programs that would foster Jewish/Indigenous relationships. Programs had to involve the local Indigenous community and welcome participants from the greater community, whether in person or via Zoom.
