About Yesod
Yesod is dedicated to strengthening the future of Jewish Europe by investing in key individual Jewish community professionals and educators to create sustainable and meaningful European Jewish community life. We believe that individuals who are skilled, connected, valued and grounded in Jewish purpose as professionals and educators will have the greatest potential for impact. Through our founding partners’ collective experience and conversations in the field, Yesod identified a need to increase the scope of opportunities for professional development and Jewish fluency – knowledge, understanding, questioning, and application of Jewish concepts and text – for these individuals. 

Yesod provides a range of seminars, funds and resources together with access to external opportunities, so that funding, training in languages beyond English, geographic location of events, and time availability are not barriers to progression. This framework of initiatives allows us to be responsive and flexible in meeting the professional development and Jewish fluency needs of European Jewish community professionals at different stages of their careers and in all different types of roles.

Yesod was created by three organisations – the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe (RFHE) and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation (CLSFF) – committed to supporting and strengthening European Jewish communities. Together we share the vision of a vibrant, meaningful, Jewish life comprised of strong communities driven by inspired and engaged individuals.
