Jerusalem, Israel – December 2, 2019 – Applications are now open for the 2020 Nefesh B’Nefesh “Initiative for Zionist Innovation” (IZI), supported and run together with the Steinmetz Herskovitz Family Fund. The goal of the initiative is to support Olim committed to strengthening and building communities.

While it can take time for Olim to find their place in Israeli society, many newcomers embrace the opportunity to innovate and build communities through a variety of creative ideas. Through IZI, Nefesh B’Nefesh offers these Olim mentorship, networking assistance, seed funding and logistical support, to assist in the dream growing communities and effecting throughout Israeli society.

“From the moment our Olim step off the plane, they are looking for a sense of community to help them integrate and adjust into their new lives.” said Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Nefesh B’Nefesh. “While there are already many incredible communities and infrastructures that exist in Israel, we applaud and support those Olim who seek to build and improve within their own neighborhoods to create a model of community-building throughout the country.”

To be eligible for the Initiative for Zionist Innovation, candidates must have made or are making Aliyah from North America and the UK with a confirmed Aliyah date before January 1, 2020. Candidates must submit a mission statement for their initiative, a basic business plan and an explanation of how Nefesh B’Nefesh can help further these projects.

“The Steinmetz Herskovitz Fund places a high importance on the concept of community building and leadership within Israel” said Marty Herskovitz, Oleh and Philanthropist. “We believe that together with Nefesh B’Nefesh, we can enable our grant recipients to create new models of community structure that will enrich Israeli society for many years to come.”

Candidates will be chosen by a special committee consisting of community leaders and Nefesh B’Nefesh staff who will review the applications and award grants. Applications are now being accepted through January 10, 2020. Successful candidates will be announced by March 25, 2020.
