HUC-JIR's Institute for Judaism and Sexual Orientation (IJSO) is the only entity within the Jewish community with the explicit mission of preparing Jewish leadership with the capacity, compassion and skills to change congregational attitudes, policies, and, indeed, Jewish society so as to include each and every Jew.
To achieve our goals, HUC-JIR seeks gifts from private individuals and institutions to fulfill our mission and to make the IJSO a permanent part of the College-Institute. We seek to build an endowment fund of $5 million to keep this important Institute financially secure for future generations.
We look forward to your joining with us in our mission.
