BikkurimBikkurim Deadline Rapidly Approaching
Bikkurim is like the idealabs of innovative Jewish programs – except without the ridiculous sock puppet. Based out of New York, Bikkurim seeks to energize and enrich “the North American Jewish community by finding innovative Jewish ideas and nurturing them to sustainability.” Following the business incubator model, Bikkurim offers New York based Jewish innovators office space, technical assistance, networking opportunities and even some cash. So if you think you have the next JDub Records, Heeb Magazine or Limmud NY (all current or past resident groups) please begin your application process NOW. Your pre-application is due March 1st!! Otherwise, if this post is too late or if you totally missed the Bikkurim banner that’s been sitting on the side of the page for the last two weeks, well at least check out the very informative Web site so that you can prepare for the next round of applications.

Hat tip to Samantha Roth (no relation to Philip …), Bikkurim’s Administrative Coordinator for taking the time to introduce me to the ins and outs of the organization.
