What is the Schusterman Fellowship?
The Schusterman Fellowship supports, cultivates and invests in exceptional Jewish leaders committed to building and sustaining Jewish nonprofits and Israeli civil society.
Our 18-month leadership development program and lifelong fellowship community offer rising executive-level professionals the opportunity to develop as authentic, dynamic leaders through a robust curriculum, a cohort of peers and guidance from top coaches and experts.
The Fellowship reflects our belief that for Jewish life and Israel to thrive in the 21st century, we need talented, diverse leaders at the helm—leaders who serve with clarity of purpose, empathy and the ability to work in partnership to build a vision for the future.

7 Competencies for Effective Leadership
With input from experts across the Jewish leadership development and education sectors, we identified seven common competencies that have helped Schusterman Fellows strengthen their capacity to successfully lead their organizations and communities—regardless of their unique skills, challenges and backgrounds
We believe leaders across all sectors can benefit from these competencies to drive meaningful lasting change. We offer our competency model as a guide to help any leader strengthen their leadership with the skills to build a more vibrant, just and inclusive future.
