BUILDING OUT JEWISH FUTURE
ONE PERSONAL SPIRITUAL CONNECTION AT A TIME
ONE CAMPER AT A TIME
ONEISRAEL EXPERIENCE AT A TIME

The Atlantic Jewish Foundation is dedicated to creating permanent residence to perpetually fund the challenges and needs of the Atlantic Jewish communities. Providing scholarships (see below for information) for young people and others in our community broadens their Jewish education and experiences.
Raising funds for chaplaincy services will become a major initiative as there is only funding remaining for this service for 2 more years. Holocaust education and immigration initiatives are two of the many focused of the AJC which require stable funding as well.
As some Atlantic communities shrink and demographics and desires change the AJF is the answer to dealing with issues as they arise.

You don’t have to be wealthy to help.

With every modest initial gift, you can create a permanent legacy.

The Atlantic Jewish Foundation supports:

  • The Atlantic Chaplaincy program
  • CampKadimahScholarships
  • Israel Experience Scholarships of Canadian youth and young adults
  • PJ Library Program
