To continue its work supporting Jewish projects outside London, the Clore Duffield Foundation is inviting anyone with an idea that helps to enhance Jewish life to apply for a grant from its £100,000 resource fund.
Sparks, The Clore Jewish Development Fund is offering grants of between £1,000 to £20,000.
In 2007, projects in Glasgow, Brighton, Manchester, Leeds and Bangor benefited from help.
In Bangor, a grant of £10,000 is helping the local community to put Bangor back on the Jewish map and aims to bring Jews in north Wales together for a diverse range of events.
"We want to enhance and support communities regardless of the size. Size is not the issue, Bangor has only a dozen or so Jews, but the project was very worthwhile," said Rachel Ingram, assistant director, Clore Duffield Foundation.
Applications for funding need to apply by April 30.
