National Young Leadership Cabinet

About

National Young Leadership Cabinet or “NYLC” is a group of men and women, ages 30-45, from communities across the country, who are deeply committed to shaping a bright future for the Jewish people in North America, Israel, and around the world. A dynamic, creative force for change, Cabinet members are distinguished by their civic and financial contributions to Jewish communal life and their personal leadership qualities. Members of Cabinet give $5,000 or more to their federation’s annual campaign.

 

What We Do

NYLC is a six-year journey with a variety of destinations, all of which culminate with stronger, more vibrant leaders. Cabinet alumni are among today’s leaders in virtually every Jewish community in North America.

Cabinet members explore the current challenges and opportunities facing the Jewish people and develop ideas and approaches to engage the next generation of young leaders. Through annual retreats and conferences, we forge a continental network of young leaders, develop leadership skills, and learn about Israel advocacy, humanitarian endeavors, legislative issues, and Jewish life. On missions to places like as Ethiopia, Budapest, Sarajevo, Minsk, St. Petersburg, Berlin, Argentina, Poland, and, of course, Israel, we witness the needs of the Jewish people in diverse communities around the globe.

All of these experiences send us back to our home communities empowered as advocates and prepared to motivate others to join our efforts. We embody and promote an inclusive, pluralistic Jewish environment. We learn from and inspire each other.

NYLC is what you make of it — and for many, it is a profound experience that illuminates leadership paths and builds enduring friendships.
