Jewish Initiative for Animals is supported by
EJF Philanthropies has supported both animal welfare and Jewish communal projects for several years and is the lead funder of JIFA.
The Foer Foundation is internationally best-selling author, Jonathan Safran Foer’s, nonprofit organization and a co-sponsor of the Jewish Initiative for Animals. Foer is a founding board member of Farm Forward, the parent organization executing JIFA, and his book Eating Animals inspires much of JIFA’s work for farmed animals. Jonathan Safran Foer has a special appreciation for the Jewish Initiative for Animals and will be personally involved in several JIFA events. We’re especially excited that Jonathan has teamed up with Natalie Portman and Twitter founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams to turn Eating Animals into a feature-length documentary and we will be doing several joint events with The Foer Foundation and JIFA upon its release.
