About the Guide

Slingshot, A Resource Guide to Jewish Innovation, is an annual compilation of the most inspiring and innovative organizations, projects, and programs in the North American Jewish community today. First published in 2005, Slingshot continues to highlight those organizations in Jewish life with particular resonance among the next generation. Since its inception, Slingshot has highlighted more than 250 innovative Jewish organizations in North America.

The Slingshot resource guide is distributed to 7,500 funders, foundation professionals, federation executives, and not-for-profit leaders annually, in addition to tens of thousands of online downloads. Slingshot is read at family foundation board tables, in classrooms, at Thanksgiving dinners, and thousands of other places. If you have an innovative use for Slingshot, we’d love to hear about it.
