Yesod: Foundations in Jewish Leadership
Yesod, the Hebrew word for foundation, aptly describes a vital initiative of the JFNA Mandel Center for Leadership Excellence in collaboration with the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning. The Yesod curriculum is built upon the knowledge and skills a leader needs to be effective. The curriculum was developed through the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning and was written by Dr. Erica Brown. Course content merges Judaic text study, business skills, leadership theory, and experiential application. We will be running it again beginning in January 2020 facilitated by Judy Avner!
We are in our fifth year of this amazing, nationally created leadership program to help build the lay leadership of all our local area partners.
