At the group’s annual conference, being held in Denver, a new, $6 million matching grant program for congregational schools was announced, initiated by philanthropists Carol Auerbach, Diane Troderman and Ricky Shechtel, the network’s new chairwoman. The program will be a partnership of a group of private funders supported by both the network and the Jewish Education Service of North America.
