A HAT TRICK! JPB awarded three grants from the Episcopal Church
In recognition of our effective work, JPB recently won three prestigious grants for 2020 from the Episcopal Church, totaling $47,500!
Sponsored by Province I (the Dioceses of New England), JPB successfully applied to the National Episcopal Church's Constable Fund for a $20,000 grant to fund interfaith religious education at each of its four residential youth programs in 2020.
The World Mission Board of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas awarded $17,500 for JPB's peace and leadership education programs in 35 schools across Jerusalem and Israel. These programs are operated in cooperation with Palmer Memorial Church in Houston.
The Episcopal parish of St. Michael and All Angels on Sanibel Island, Florida granted $10,000 to JPB's EXCEL teacher-training program. Cambridge University and Retorika are partners in this program for Arab and Jewish educators in peacebuilding and English language pedagogy.
