NewGround named a top innovative organization by Slingshot!


NewGround was named one of America’s top 50 innovative Jewish organizations for the 3rd year in a row!

The annual Slingshot Guide, which highlights the best of the Jewish nonprofit world, was released today, March 7th, 2016, and NewGround was selected from among hundreds of finalists. The Guide noted that NewGround’s fellowship and High School initiative “produce emerging leaders who forge change.”

The organizations included in the Guide are driving the future of Jewish life and engagement by motivating new audiences to participate in their work and responding to the needs of individuals and communities – both within and beyond the Jewish community – as never before. NewGround is proud to be among the 50 organizations honored for achieving these results.

The Slingshot Guide also noted:

“In recent years, NewGround’s efforts have been so successful that the group has been recognized by Harvard University’s Pluralism Project, and the White House invited NewGround to present on a panel about effective bridge building between communities of different faiths. This kind of recognition comes when an organization is doing something right, and NewGround has perfected its approach to bridge building.”

NewGround is thrilled to be a part of the amazing community of hundreds of innovative Jewish organizations included in the Guide over the past eleven years who continue to create positive change in the community
