The Task Force on Israel Engagement of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia's Center for Israel and Overseas is offering a total of $75,000 in grants to agencies, youth groups, synagogues and community organizations in the Philadelphia area to support educational and cultural programs.

The programs need to: enhance understanding of Israel's society, culture and people; engage and educate our community about Israel; build a stronger connection between our community and Israel; and emphasize the role of Israel in Jewish life.

There is no deadline to submit a grant application. Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis, starting this month.

Applications will be reviewed by volunteer members of the Task Force according to these criteria:

• All of the information requested on the application must be provided.

• Programs must take place before Aug. 31, 2006.

• Collaboration with other organizations in the community will be viewed favorably.

• Most of the grant awards will not exceed $3,000 or 50 percent of the total budget of the program, whichever is greater. Additional funding may be available for creative and innovative programming and programming that has a high community impact.
