Rise Up is honored to have been chosen as one of Slingshot’s “10 to Watch” for 2022! This yearly list features new organizations in the Jewish community using creative approaches to meet current and timely needs. This year’s top ten include two Rise Up grantee partners - Mitsui Collective and Jewtina y Co.
All ten honored organizations are addressing a range of needs and experiences in the Jewish community—addiction, infertility, the leadership of Orthodox women, Latinx-Jewish identity, anti-racist organizing, and more. eJewish Philanthropy ran a story on 10 to Watch, “Latest cohort of Slingshot’s ‘10 to Watch’ places focus on Jews of Color, gender equality.
