Chai Lifeline has announced the launch of its inaugural Lubeck Fellowship in Jewish Nonprofit and Communal Leadership, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at shaping the future leaders of the Jewish community. The program recently kicked off with an outstanding cohort of 23 dedicated and passionate participants, who have embarked on a transformative journey of leadership and community engagement.
The Lubeck Fellowship, as part of Chai Lifeline’s Pam & Joe Lubeck and Family National Volunteer Leadership Initiative, is designed to provide young men and women who have demonstrated unwavering dedication to volunteerism and community activism with a unique opportunity to engage with established leaders in the nonprofit sector, gain valuable insights, and acquire the skills necessary for future roles in Jewish communal leadership.
The program features an intensive 8-session weekly virtual seminar that spans a wide array of topics, including Jewish values and ethics in leadership, diverse leadership styles and strategies, organizational development in non-profit settings, community leadership and engagement, and much more. These sessions are led by renowned experts and speakers who generously share their knowledge and experiences with the Fellows.
“In light of the difficult times we all face, particularly with what is happening in Israel, the need for strong leadership within the Jewish community has never been more imperative,” said Rabbi Simcha Scholar, CEO of Chai Lifeline. “Our community is facing unprecedented challenges and uncertainties. Now, more than ever, we need leaders who can navigate these complex waters. The young men and women of the Lubeck Fellowship are poised to do just that.”
As they progress through the curriculum, the participants will not only develop leadership skills but also build lifelong connections with fellow participants and established leaders in the nonprofit sector.
“We are excited to embark on this journey with our Fellows, who represent the bright future of the Jewish community. Their passion, drive, and commitment to making a difference are evident, and we are confident that they will go on to accomplish remarkable things,” said Rabbi Ari Dembitzer, Director of the Lubeck Fellowship.
The Lubeck Fellowship in Jewish Nonprofit and Communal Leadership is made possible through the generous support of the Lubeck family and underscores Chai Lifeline’s commitment to nurturing leadership talent within the Jewish community.
