YOUNG LEADERSHIP

ABOUT US

IAJF Young Leadership was established in 2013 for young professionals in their 20s to mid-30s from across the Tri-State area.  The division provides high-quality social and educational programs in service of IAJF’s mission, as well as networking opportunities for young professionals.  From Shabbat dinners and participation in AIPAC to Happy Hours and Challah Bakes, IAJF-YL actively engages its membership in cultural activities, raises awareness for the charitable causes IAJF supports, and encourages pride in our heritage and in Israel. 

 

We invite you to join our warm and committed group of young professionals.
