The JGSI Sloan Fellowship is a groundbreaking, award-winning training program that has inspired the next generation of Jewish leadership for hundreds of young adults.
Over 8-10 weekly sessions, select Jewish graduate students and alumni will discuss the fundamentals of Jewish ethics and leadership through interactive presentations by world-class speakers. Participants will gain the rare opportunity to develop meaningful connections with top Jewish executives, attorneys and community activists, and with each other. Those who complete all sessions will be eligible to participate in an exclusive add-on educational series for a stipend of $300.
We will have three
cohorts this Spring 2024:1. Los Angeles (live in-person) - meets weekly, Sunday nights
2. New York (live in-person) - meets weekly, Thursday nights
3. Virtual (for those outside NY and LA) - meets weekly, Wednesday nights
In-person sessions will include weekly dinners, social action volunteering, Shabbat experiences and retreats, and exclusive events and activities. Virtual sessions will include breakout rooms by geographic area and introductions to local Jewish organizations and educators, so you can build your local peer group while forming a national community. PLEASE NOTE: Participants located in Los Angeles or New York are not eligible for the Virtual cohort and must participate in in-person sessions.
For all participants, premier partner nonprofits including the Jewish Federation, Bet Tzedek and the ADL will present participants with further leadership opportunities.Past guest speakers have included:
