Finalists' Federation Visit, Orientation and Interviews
It is very important that as a FEREP candidate, you gain a more in-depth understanding of Federation. Therefore, if you advance to the Finalist round, we will arrange a visit and orientation with your local Federation. The purpose of the orientation is to provide you with further information about Federations, including:
Your visit also provides the FEREP Program with a second opportunity to asses your candidacy.
The FEREP Selection Committee will review all applications and identify Finalists who will be invited to The Jewish Federations of North America offices in New York City in April to participate in the final interview process. Applicants will know if they have been invited to the finalist stage within approximately five weeks of the application deadline.
