Leadership is key to creating a dynamic Jewish future.
A core part of our work is inspiring, engaging and empowering young Jews to take an active role in shaping a vibrant, inclusive Jewish future, deeply connected to Israel and committed to making the world a better place. Central to this vision is a global Jewish ecosystem equipped to support and nurture the Jewish journeys of all young Jews, today and in the future. Learn more about our work in the Jewish community.
We believe this ecosystem requires a strong organizational infrastructure helmed by exceptional professionals. That is why we are committed to working at the individual, organizational and ecosystem levels to transform how the Jewish communal sector invests in professional and volunteer leadership.
One of our main goals is to support exceptional leaders as they build highly effective organizations that go on to have a demonstrable and positive impact on the world and, in turn, attract the very best and brightest talent at all levels. Some of our key initiatives include:
- Schusterman Fellowship: The Fellowship is a highly selective leadership development program offering best-in-class training for executive-aimed professionals who see Jewish organizational leadership as an important way to create transformational change in the world. Fellows participate in an 18-month program featuring personal assessments, executive coaching and customized leadership development opportunities. They have an opportunity to apply their learning in real-time and are prepared to assume C-suite or executive committee lay leadership positions in major Jewish organizations within the next few years.

- Strengthening our Network: Through periodic gatherings, we bring together the professional and board leadership of our partner organizations to provide professional development to key individual leaders and strengthen the network among them. Our goal is to promote a culture in the Jewish community that fosters bold, creative thinking, deeper communication and meaningful collaboration.
- Partnerships and Collaborations: We also form partnerships and collaborations with organizations like Leading Edge and Fund The People to address leadership challenges in Jewish life, as well as to engage the Jewish community to adopt best practices in talent investment and set standards that will make it a great place to work.
