Jewish Funds for Justice and Spark: The Partnership for Service will merge. Under the arrangement announced Monday, Spark will become a division of Jewish Funds for Justice, a national foundation providing grants and programming aimed at combating what it calls the roots of social and economic injustice. Based in Baltimore, Spark sponsors programs aimed at making a commitment to service an integral part of Jewish identity. “We are excited that the merger will enable us to take Spark’s innovative pilot to a larger scale,” said Michael Steinhardt, one of five primary funders of Spark.
