Grants to Maryland nonprofit Jewish organizations and congregations for innovative activities that enhance Jewish education in eligible locations. Priority will be given to projects and programs focusing on informal Jewish education, as well as to those designed for children over the age of 13, college students, or families with school-age children. The Jacob & Hilda Blaustein Fund for the Enrichment of Jewish Education was established to provide funding for programs and activities that enrich informal Jewish education in the Greater Baltimore area.


  • Priority will be given to projects that focus on informal Jewish education.
  • Support will be provided for programs that are innovative and enriching for your organization.
  • Priority will be directed to projects for children over the age of 13, college students, or families with school-age children.
