JUF- Right Start Program!

I was researching some upcoming events sponsored by JUF  (Jewish United Fund of Chicago) and PJ Library when I discovered this kind of amazing program.

JUF has something they call the Right Start Program, which is a voucher/grant of $1000/$2000 dollars for first time enrollees in a Jewish early education program.

Here are the caveats:

To be eligible for the JUF Right Start Signature Voucher, a child must be:
  • Enrolling in a Jewish early childhood program for the first time.
  • The first child in the family to attend a Jewish early childhood program.
  • A member of a family where at least one parent identifies as Jewish.
  • Enrolling in a JUF Right Start-affiliated program (click here for complete list.)
  • Enrolling in a class where the child attends independently* and meets at least 2 times/week
  • Starting a program on or after January 1, 2016.**
If you don't meet all these criteria, you may still be eligible for a smaller sibling grant from them. Only one voucher per child may be used.

I think this is a great way to get kids into Judaism at an early age, and a great incentive for parents to use a Jewish pre-school vs. some other program.  It's win/win all the way around!

JUF Right Start™ is a gift to families from the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago thanks to the generosity of the Harvey L. Miller Supporting Foundation, The Crown Family, The Shraiberg Family in Memory of Miriam Shraiberg, Steven B. Nasatir New Directions Fund and other local donors.

This post is NOT a sponsored post.  I just found out about it and wanted to share.
