The Mary Livingston Griggs and Mary Griggs Burke Foundation
JCC Association has made grants to 22 JCCs in North America as part of our Centennial celebration. Our goal is to affirm the power of music and to inspire creativity, collaboration and community. The projects will take place across North America between January and September 2017, and engage and reflect the diversity of the Jewish American experience. We look forward to sharing the creative process of our communities as they make music happen, through a series of shared images, videos and musical stories.
