Wechsler Fellowship

So, What is the Wechsler Fellowship?

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Wechsler Fellowship: Building Pittsburgh’s Next Jewish Leaders is an initiative to engage, develop and inspire leadership in the Pittsburgh Jewish community. Wechsler explores the work of our Jewish community organizations, cultivates new leaders, and strengthens the sense of connection among Jewish young professionals from the diverse religious, professional and educational backgrounds that form the fabric of the Pittsburgh Jewish community. The Wechsler Fellowship is open to individuals ages 22-45 who are carefully selected following a nomination, application, and interview process.

The Wechsler Fellowship is a unique and exclusive opportunity for young adults ages 22-45 who are interested in, and passionate about, the Jewish community. Wechsler provides a platform for participants to network, learn, and engage with the Pittsburgh Jewish community. The fellowship’s workshops, seminars, and learning opportunities encourage and inspire participants to take an active role as future leaders of our Jewish community. Throughout the program, fellows are provided with the opportunity to connect with current professionals and volunteer leadership to evolve their own leadership style and strengthen their Jewish identity. The program creates meaningful connections through introductions to and interactions with the services that the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh supports through its Community Campaign. Participants will learn the ins and outs of our community, the history of Jewish Pittsburgh, the role different agencies play in our community, and how to build a thriving and engaged Jewish population now and into the future. Graduates of Wechsler will utilize their strengths to perpetuate the Federation and its beneficiary agencies’ missions both locally and globally.

Wechsler is a 15-month course with monthly sessions from approximately March 2019 through June 2020. Highlights from the course have included tours of local agencies, interactive volunteer experiences, a mock budget and allocations process, and networking opportunities. The Wechsler Fellowship is a program of the Young Adult Division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.

The Wechsler Fellowship is fully funded by the Irving J. and Jacquelin G. Wechsler Endowment Fund of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Jewish Community Foundation.
