JLens (www.jlensnetwork.org) is a nonprofit established in 2012 to explore a Jewish lens on investing and serve as a bridge between the Jewish community and the global responsible investing arena. Responsible investing (or impact investing) describes the practice of aligning investment capital with values to achieve positive impact alongside financial return. Responsible investing is immensely popular and growing, and faith groups have a leadership role in the field. JLens represents the Jewish community in this arena: we build long-term advocacy relationships with major corporations to move the needle on corporate behavior, and we are an active participant in the field at dozens of investor coalitions and convenings annually. JLens offers education to Jewish institutions and individuals on Jewish values and impact investing (for example, the Jewish Impact Investing Summit) and consulting for Jewish institutions who seek to align their investments with Jewish values. JLens oversees the Jewish Advocacy Strategy, a large-cap public equity investment offering seeded by Jewish federations and foundations.
