CORE18 Leaders Lab, a new and exclusive social entrepreneurial boot camp for Jewish leaders ages 19-25, is being co- chaired by  actor Mayim Bialik, of The Big Bang Theory, UK Chief Rabbi Emeritus Lord Jonathan Sacks, and Dr. Tal ben-Shahar, who taught Harvard’s hugely popular course “Positive Psychology and Leadership.”      

CORE18 gives young Jewish leaders a platform to build themselves, their ideas and their communities through a high-powered fellowship and accelerator program.

This fully funded fellowship will include high-level mentoring, Jewish learning, internship placement, an IDC Herzliya Certified Leadership Program in Israel, and a mission to Eastern Europe.  Space is limited to thirty-six fellows each term.  Application deadline:  October 15, 2013.  If you know any young, uber-talented “Wexners” who would qualify, please spread the word.

JoAnne Papir is the Co-Director of CORE18 Leaders Lab and the wife of Eli Papir, a Miami Heritage alum. JoAnne can be reached at
