Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York is uniquely situated to bring resources and skill-building opportunities to all of our local partners in a meaningful way.  Join us for this half-day session to further and continue dialogue amongst local professionals and lay leaders.

The 2019 Community Engagement Summit is designed to:

  • Convene the community of professionals and lay leaders who are situated to or are already working on efforts with/for the engagement of participants in their 20’s and 30’s with or without families;
  • Create clarity around the world of “engagement” including definitions, assumptions, skills building, and professional development;
  • Cultivate the tremendously important communal conversation about the younger demographics’ and marginalized populations’ relationship to organized Jewish institutional life as it pertains to their Jewish journeys;
  • Continue framing infrastructure for local professionals and lay leaders as a cohort of well-trained builders of our vibrant and diverse community;
  • Collaborate with and learn from thought leaders around the engagement sphere at national organizations.
