Building Strong Communities Through Investment in People

Transforming the talent pipeline in Federations is an urgent and ambitious task. JFNA is committed to increasing the quantity and quality of professional leadership at every level, planning for succession and developing and retaining excellent talent as individuals grow in their careers.

Why We Do the Work We Do

Jewish Federation professionals need an integrated, unified talent strategy – especially now, as the global COVID-19 pandemic has caused a shift to remote work and learning. The Mandel Center for Leadership Excellence believes the work that Jewish communal professionals do is essential. Every professional deserves to be invested in and deserves to work for organizations with healthy organizational cultures

The Work We Are Doing

In order to meet the needs of Jewish communal professionals, the Mandel Center is invested in a number of areas, including: building the executive pipeline, developing a learning framework for all professionals, investing in healthy organizational culture, and supporting field-building initiatives.
