Fisher Foundation Grants
Benefit Jewish Community

The Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit's Max
M. Fisher Jewish
Community Foundation will
award $84,000 in grants to
six Jewish community organ-
izations for social service,
cultural and educational pro-
grams for the coming year.
The grants were approved on
Aug. 14 at a combined board
meeting of Federation and its
investment arm, the United
Jewish Foundation.
The Fisher Foundation was
established in 1964 to fund
the startup period of innova-
tive and creative projects that
improve the quality of life for
members of the community.
While Federation's Annual
Campaign meets essential,
ongoing budgetary needs, the
Fisher Foundation provides
an additional resource and
opportunity for small pilot
projects. Fisher Foundation
grants are approved twice a
year at annual January and
June meetings. Funding
comes from the annual grant
allocated to Federation from
the United Jewish
Foundation, which owns,
manages and invests the
assets, endowment funds and
real estate of Detroit's Jewish
community.
Remarking on the grants
this year, Mark Hauser, presi-
dent of the United Jewish
Foundation, reminded the
board of the importance of
developing new sources of
funding. "Due to the down-
turn in the economy, we can-
not just assume that dollars
will continue to be there. We
can succeed, but it will take
more effort to fund our
future."
The six programs to receive
2002 Fisher Foundation
grants are:

• Adat Shalom Synagogue
in Farmington Hills: $18,000
for the nursery/kindergarten
Hebrew immersion program.
In collaboration with
Federation's Alliance for
Jewish Education, this pro-

()Tam teaches conversational
Hebrew to young children
who are in a stage of devel-
opment when they can easily
learn to speak a second lan-
guage.

• Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Detroit's
Synagogue/Federation
Relations Committee: award-
ed $6,000 for the bar/bat
mitzvah outreach program.
With oversight by
Federation's Community
Outreach and Education
Department and the Agency
for Jewish Education, this
program provides students
celebrating their bar/bat
mitzvah with a special
tzedakah box.

• Kollel Torah MiTzion-
Detroit: awarded $24,000 for
its innovative Israeli-based
program that brings a group
of Modern Orthodox couples
from Israel to serve as teach-
ers, mentors and role models
in the community. In Israel,
the program is well estab-
lished, under the auspices of
the Religious Zionist Forum,
and affiliated with Yeshiva
University and the
Rabbinical Council of
America.

• Southfield-based Yeshiva
Beth Yehuda: awarded
$22,000 for the Maalot, a 3-
year college program specifi-
cally designed for Orthodox
women who have completed
a year of seminary study in
Israel after high school.

• Jewish Community
Council of Metropolitan
Detroit: $4,000 for the
Michigan Coalition on the
Environment and Jewish
Life, an outreach program
created in 1999 to address
environmental concerns and
build the connection
between Judaism and the
environment in the Detroit
and Ann Arbor Jewish com-
munities. This past year,
