About Us

Jewish Story Partners (JSP), launching officially early in 2021, is a new funding organization that seeks to stimulate and support the highest quality films and media that utilize fresh, nuanced perspectives to expand general audiences’ understanding of the Jewish experience—in all its complexity, vibrancy, and diversity.  

Jewish Story Partners believes that storytelling is a cultural plow-share, a humanizing force, and a vital conduit for the free exchange of ideas in a democratic, open, and pluralistic society. By cultivating and funding independent Jewish-themed content of the highest caliber, JSP will act as a bridge of understanding both within the Jewish community, and between the Jewish community and its neighbors.  The curatorial vision of Jewish Story Partners is expansive, inclusive, and intersectional-- welcoming projects across a broad range of possible narratives, artistic approaches, perspectives, and provenances. In keeping with the Jewish philosophy of Tikkun Olam, or “repairing the world,” in addition to supporting projects about the Jewish experience, JSP will allocate up to 10% of available granting funds to projects that explore struggles in other communities. 

JSP has fiscal sponsorship from Katahdin Foundation, Inc., dba Katahdin Productions.
