Jewish Federation's 11th class of the Bernstein Leadership Group Now in Progress


Attending an event or two in the Jewish community is one thing, but becoming an inspired leader or board member is another. How do you jump in and take your involvement to the next level? For many young Jewish leaders in the Queen City, the answer is the Bernstein Leadership Group.


Currently in its eleventh class, the Donald H. and Barbara K. Bernstein Leadership Development Group is an 18-month program of the Jewish Federation that offers unique opportunities to its participants, including:

  • An inside look at local Jewish agencies and access to their lay and professional leaders
  • Interaction with renowned national leaders
  • The opportunity to develop tangible leadership skills
  • The fellowship of other emerging leaders


Through monthly speakers and discussions over the course of a year and a half, Bernstein leaders become a tight-knit group. By “graduation,” many participants have developed their interests in local Jewish agencies and have started down a path to becoming engaged committee or board members.


The eleventh class began in April 2017 and will graduate in August 2018. The twelfth class will begin in 2019.
