Grants & Fundraising   /   2023-2024 Grants

KHAZBAR aims to cultivate an intergenerational JOCISM (Jew of Color, Indigenous, Sephardic Mizrahi) cohort by hosting gatherings of artists, scholars, writers, and composer-musicians, both online and in-person, to nurture collaborative projects and provide mutual support in workshop settings. The completed works will contribute to the inaugural edition of GERSHOM: A JOCISM peer-reviewed journal encompassing literary content, commentary, arts, liturgy, and culture. This grant additionally supports the development of a journal portal to facilitate the submission of content. At the core of the project is the In-Person Intergenerational Incubator for GERSHOM, where 7 Mentoring Leads will facilitate workshops, guide project development, and curate works for inclusion in the journal. 


This grant was stewarded by the JoCI Philanthropy Fellows.
