Applications for the fifth cohort of the Synagogue Vegan Challenge from Shamayim are now open from American synagogues.
‘The goal of the Synagogue Vegan Challenge is simple: to provide training, education, and funding for Jewish communities to incorporate vegan programming for a year! Eight synagogues will be selected this year to host monthly events that serve vegan food and provide education about the Jewish, ethical, environmental, & health reasons to eat plant-based. This annual program, generously sponsored by VegFund, brings veganism to Jewish communities across the country through a friendly, food-based approach. Our first cohort was launched in Fall 2017. Recruitment for the fifth cohort of the SVC is opening shortly. Synagogues who are not meeting in person due to COVID-19 are encouraged to apply as well. We will work with you to execute remote and virtual events for your community and grant funding can be used to send plant-based food to your congregants.’
