To create a dynamic Jewish future, we need a global Jewish ecosystem supported by a strong organizational infrastructure helmed by exceptional professionals and lay leaders. 

That is why we created the Schusterman Fellowship—a highly selective program offering best-in-class leadership development. Fellows have the opportunity to work directly with professional coaches, dedicated staff and each other to apply their learning in real-time and grow their capacity to lead the Jewish community.

Meet the Schusterman Fellows and Senior Fellows

Our current and past cohorts form a diverse group of more than 100 leaders. They have varied backgrounds and experiences, they come from across the U.S., Europe, Israel, South Africa and Australia, and they work inside and outside of the Jewish sector. They all have one thing in common: these individuals see Jewish leadership as an important way to create transformational change in the world. Discover their stories below!
