Co-Create | Center for Jewish Life
Center for Jewish Life - Princeton Hillel


Co-Create is the CJL's  incubator program. Want to pilot something new in Princeton’s Jewish community? The CJL will help you create it!

In an inclusive, non-judgmental, God-optional, creative, and welcoming community, our Co-Create programming focuses on four areas:, Creativity, Social Good, Politics and Debate, and Community Building.

Co-Create includes seed grants between $100 and $1000 and support from CJL staff to help translate your ideas into reality.

Co-Creators are optimistic, passionate, creative, proactive, self-motivated, responsible, and willing to take risks. To learn more about Co-Create, or to pitch a project for this coming semester, email Rabbi Ira Dounn.
