Leadership JewishColumbus

Leadership JewishColumbus is a 1-year program designed to equip participants to be Columbus Jewish community’s next generation of leadership. Now entering its fourth cycle, Leadership JewishColumbus participants meet monthly to deepen their knowledge of Jewish values and ethics, see firsthand the important work of JewishColumbus’ partner agencies, attain important board skills and have the opportunity to apply these skills to address areas of concern in our community.
