We are pleased to announce our grantees for the 2015 Gendler Grapevine Project’s “New Seeds” initiative! Each of our seven grantees presented innovative, interesting, and engaging projects. The applicants drew inspiration from the life and teachings of Rabbi Gendler, recognizing that he incorporated his theories and teachings into physical and practical action that resonated with his congregants and the community.
