How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Kulanu engages with dispersed Jewish groups and individuals - many of whom have long been disconnected from the worldwide Jewish community, while others have discovered and embraced Judaism on their own - through networking and support. We raise awareness and support for emerging communities through education, research, and publications about their histories and traditions. Our connections help all of us enrich our Jewish lives.
