SAN FRANCISCO (JTA) -- The Jim Joseph Foundation made a $3 million challenge grant to the Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School -- the 5-year-old foundation's first direct grant to a rabbinical school.

The money will be disbursed over a five-year period. The yeshiva will commit to matching $2.5 million of the grant on a one-to-one basis.

Founded in 2001 by Rabbi Avi Weiss, Yeshivat Chovevei Torah has carved out a niche on the left wing of Modern Orthodoxy, ordaining rabbis committed to a more open, pluralistic approach to Orthodox Judaism.
