Who are the Shomrim?

The JLV Shomrim are Jewish Learning Venture’s most generous supporters, who have committed to sustaining the Agency and its initiatives. Shomrim – guardians – are the stewards of our community who ensure that we continue to provide Jewish education and engagement across the Greater Philadelphia community.

Benefits for all JLV Shomrim

  • No further solicitations
    We recognize the generous support of our JLV Shomrim and in that spirit will not ask for additional contributions to any of our campaigns for the rest of the program year.
  • Sponsorship recognition
    Recognition of your Shomrim level will be listed on the JLV website, in the Annual Celebration journal, and on materials for WCI’s JDAIM series and jkidphilly’s annual fundraiser.
