This year’s guide brings optimism to the communal conversation in this moment, giving us pause to celebrate the important and impactful work being done around the country. We believe that it is from the incredible organizations within this guide that some of the most important responses to today’s challenges will emerge.

Where we were in 2017

Slingshot 2017 highlights some of the most innovative programming in our community, organizations that are uniquely poised to meet today’s needs. We see true leadership and groundbreaking work in the Jewish social justice movement, the LGBTQ community, organizations working in the Jewish Outdoor, Food and Environmental Education movement, and in radically inclusive spiritual communities that are seeking connection and solidarity with other minorities.
