The Slingshot Fund’s eighth annual list of inspirational and innovative organizations in Jewish life in North America includes seven agencies based in the Bay Area.
One of the standard bearers is Oakland-based Moishe House, which helps Jews in their 20s create home-based Jewish communities around the world.
Bay Area agencies among the 50 are repeat honorees Be’chol Lashon, G-dcast and Wilderness Torah, and newcomers A Wider Bridge; Kevah: Making Space for Jewish Learning; and Urban Adamah. There are 16 other first-time honorees.
Women head 64 percent of the organizations and projects listed on this year’s list, an increase over the 50 percent average from 2007 through last year.
