Why J Leaders?
I’m inspired to join the J Leaders National Council to help Jewish young adults across the country gain valuable community and professional leadership skills to strengthen the community. I saw the early impact of the Leadership Academy. I look forward to seeing the Leadership Academy expand nationally. I’m excited to help guide the strategy and direction for the National Council.
