We’re excited to offer this leadership development Fellowship experience for current and aspiring Jewish leaders.
The Program is guided by three main explorations.
Focus on personal and professional development
Sessions are guided by what we need to know about ourselves to succeed professionally, as a leader, and as a member of the global Jewish community.
Meet Joseph VogelJoseph is a graduate student at Harvard Kennedy pursuing his degree in public policy while running a free tutoring program aimed at helping at-home learners during the pandemic. He has always been involved in Jewish life - Jewish day school, BBYO, Hillel/Chabad - and continues to seek opportunities to stay connected to the community. When faced with challenges or choices, Joseph relies on his Jewish values to problem-solve and guide his decision-making. His long-term goal is to pursue a career in politics.
Focuses on communal leadership
An exploration of how we connect with one another and what it means to be Jewish in an ever-changing landscape.
Meet Samantha PearSamantha currently works as a case investigator at the CDC foundation (the CDC’s nonprofit sector) in Arizona and is applying to get her master’s in public health. She has a profound interest in storytelling - learning about her community and Judaism through the experiences of those around her. She is passionate about service, having a voice, and pursuing growth opportunities in order to leave a positive mark on the world.
Focus on taking action.
An exploration of how we can make a meaningful change in our communities and the world at large.
Meet Jeff SingerJeff was inspired by Changemakers to pursue another fellowship opportunity in Boston working with About Fresh to address food insecurity and inaccessibility. He is currently applying to graduate programs in psychology with a desire to bring mental health services to underserved communities.
