Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah encourages and supports endeavors to help people —Jews and fellow travelers— access and apply Jewish wisdom to live better lives and shape a better world. In other words, we apply particular Jewish wisdom to universal human questions.  We also continue the Lippman Kanfer family’s commitment to strengthening the ecosystem for innovation in the Jewish community and to the pursuit of justice.

The Lippman Kanfer Prize for Applied Jewish Wisdom celebrates innovative applications of particular Jewish wisdom to universal human questions.

We believe that the ever-accumulating body of Jewish wisdom offers inspiration and guidance to help people—Jews and fellow travelers—navigate life’s big questions, from how to be a good parent, partner, consumer, and citizen, to how to manage the struggles life throws our way, and much more.
