Nominate a JFCS New Leaders Fellow
The JFCS New Leaders Fellowship offers an inspiring educational experience to emerging Jewish leaders of the Bay Area.
During the nine-month fellowship, participants grapple with critical issues facing the Jewish and wider community and dive into key tenets of nonprofit management, while building a collaborative community of peers.
In culmination of their work, graduated Fellows are invited to participate in a special subsidized JFCS Fellowship Tour to Israel, in collaboration with the Shalom Hartman Institute. Graduates also have the opportunity to put their learning into action and contribute by serving on a JFCS Board Committee or JFCS Special Community Service Initiative.
