With guidance, the American Jewish community has begun to recognize that Jews in the U.S. are a multiracial people. This is in large part thanks to the leadership of the Jews of Color Initiative and its executive director, Ilana Kaufman. The Initiative, which we have proudly supported since 2019, conducts research that illuminates the racial diversity of the American Jewish community, re-grants funds to projects that center and strengthen the leadership of Jews of Color, and works with Jewish institutions to help them become more equitable and inclusive.
