The Federation’s new young leadership group had its first meeting on February 6th. The year-long course will help participants learn leadership skills; become more educated about our local Jewish community institutions; and develop a deeper understanding about issues facing Israel and the Jewish world. The course will culminate in a group study mission to Israel. Participants are: Todd Doobrow, Isa Dorsky, Alex Grodner, Kent Haines, Hirshel Hall, Josh Lourie, Rachel Mazer, Andrew Miller, Aaron Nelson, Andrew Newcomb, Anderw Petrofsky, Nadav Raviv, Evan Rhodes, Danielle Rosenbaum, Jennifer Samuelson, Mark Schaeffer, Sarah Schaeffer, Carlie Stein Somerville and Hillary Weiss. Each has agreed to serve on a Jewish community board or committee upon completion of the course. The Birmingham Jewish Foundation is helping to underwrite this program.
