One such program received a
$10,000 grant for the third year of
a Reform and Conservative spon-

for singles. Last year, all Reform

year, are planned by BBYO
members in consultation with the
AJE education staff.
The AJE's Stepping Stones
program was granted $20,000 for
outreach to unaffiliated and in-
terfaith families. Stepping Stones
works with a consortium of Re-

is the third year of the grant.
