A Jewish values-based leadership and philanthropic development program, Cabinet engages highly dedicated individuals who embody the values of humility, authenticity, and integrity. Ideal candidates take seriously their own call and responsibility to lead within the greater Jewish community as well as being an active member of the Cabinet Community. Members have the opportunity to hone their leadership skills, establish a peer group, share best practices, troubleshoot community challenges, and bring their ideas and strategies home for deepening commitment to Jewish Life and Federation.
