We aim to improve formal and experiential education by supporting high quality innovative programs, skill development, Israel experiences, volunteerism, and other engaging opportunities both in the Jewish and general community.
We work in partnerships with non-profit organizations to enhance capacity and encourage best practices.
Organizations & Programs in North America & Israel

Highlights of projects supported by the
Morris and Rosalind Goodman Family Foundation
The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre (GCRC)
The GCRC is an internationally renowned research institution, committed to coordinating and conducting independent basic cancer research and training within a technologically advanced Centre.
Affiliated with McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine, the GCRC brings together the very best scientists, technicians, graduate students and research fellows. Providing an environment where investigators work together, side-by-side sharing equipment and facilities, generates an atmosphere that fosters and encourages progressive ideas and is scientifically and financially beneficial.
The Goodman Fellowship at the Montreal Children’s Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre (MCH-MUHC)
The Morris and Rosalind Goodman Family Foundation plays a key role in nurturing the next generation of medical leaders in Montreal and in Israel. Through a two-year fellowship at the MCH-MUHC, we are offering Israel’s best and brightest scientists an exceptional opportunity to train, research and learn from experts at the MCH-MUHC.
The candidates for this award will hold a Ph.D. and will have completed all, or at least part, of their doctoral or postdoctoral studies in an Israeli research organization.
The Rosalind & Morris Goodman Family Pediatric Formulations Centre of the CHU Sainte-Justine
The Rosalind & Morris Goodman Family Pediatric Formulations Centre of the CHU Sainte-Justine, also known as the Goodman Pediatric Formulations Centre (GPFC), was opened on February 22, 2016. The overall goal of the Centre is to improve access to child-friendly medicines. We are the only Centre in Canada whose mandate is to facilitate the development of commercially available age-appropriate formulations for children. Promoting practices to increase safety of medicines administered to children is part of our mission.
Many medicines used in children are not available in pharmaceutical forms adapted to their needs. Indeed, most oral medications are produced for adults as tablets and capsules, which lack dosing flexibility to meet dosage requirements of the spectrum of ages and sizes, ranging from neonates to adolescents. Furthermore, most children under the age of 8 are unable to swallow pills.
CAPS (Creating Access Promoting Success) Program
The CAPS Program is designed to provide access to our Jewish Day Schools. By freezing annual tuition from Kindergarten through grade 6 and Secondary I through V, the program gives more Jewish children the opportunity to take advantage of a high standard of educational excellence, as well as a strong Judaic-based curriculum while providing parents with long term reassurance that Jewish day school affordability is here to stay.
Adaptive Leadership Lab (a.l.l.)
We believe that leadership is a practice and an art, not a title. The a.l.l. program creates a live laboratory for Jewish adults from across the globe to discuss local and global challenges and opportunities and to experience leadership through their own practice.
In a.l.l, we are training in the Adaptive Leadership framework developed at the Harvard Kennedy School. Learning in an Adaptive Leadership framework offers tools, tactics and behaviors to mobilize organizations and communities to tackle tough challenges and thrive in a changing world.
Limmud Global Volunteer Summit
Limmud is an international non-profit founded in the UK which is dedicated to Jewish learning in all its variety. With a global reputation for creating transformative events offering a lively grassroots approach to Jewish learning, Limmud relies on 4,000 volunteers who take ownership of many aspects of the operations.
Volunteer engagement in Limmud has a ripple effect that creates a unique energy across communities; volunteers grow into communal leadership roles and often are inspired to create new pathways to Jewish life. Yet, Limmud volunteers require ongoing training and support. To move its leadership training continuum to the next level, in 2018 we launched the biennial Limmud Global Volunteer Summit. The gathering provides an opportunity for volunteers to grapple with big issues trending across the Jewish World, share best practices and work together to create innovations for Limmud, and the broader Jewish community.
