Leading self. Leading others. Leading systems.

The Schusterman Fellowship has empowered over 130 leaders from across the globe. Our Fellows are diverse in the backgrounds they possess, the experiences that shaped them, the strengths that drive their success and the places they call home. Hailing from the U.S., Israel, South Africa and beyond, these passionate changemakers work inside and outside the Jewish sector to create transformational change in their communities and the broader world.

Our 2019 Fellows are making their marks in every corner of Jewish life and across diverse fields, including Jewish and civic engagement, advocacy, global Jewish service, social and racial justice, philanthropy, finance, law, public health and more. Get to know them here.
