JDC has created the Strategic European Loan Fund (SELF) to provide loans to Jewish communities (with no-interest charged) in order to enable them to develop, renovate, or improve the condition of properties which can then yield additional income to the local Jewish community. To help professionally manage these returned properties and maximize their potential income for the respective communities, JDC has organized training seminars for community leaders throughout Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltics, and the former Soviet Union.
The SELF Guidelines and Application are available for download below in PDF and Word formats.
The newly created brochure, Rebuilding Jewish Communities Brick by Brick, outlines the program and the communities who have benefited from it. Filled with pictures and quotes, it is designed to market the SELF Program amongst donors who are interested in helping Jewish communities in Central and Eastern Europe to build a vibrant and self-sufficient future.
