Wexner Summits: The Network In Action -
The Wexner Foundation started a new alumni program called “Summits: The Network in Action” to bring together top alumni across our programs (WSL, WIF, WGF, WFF, WHP). They work for at least a year, individually or in working groups, to address major challenges facing the Jewish world and Israel.*
The active part of the Summit on Gender will run from October 27, 2019 through November 12, 2020. The year of work will be book-ended by two gatherings: the opening meeting October 27-29, 2019 in Chantilly, VA, and the closing one in Zichron Yaakov, Israel, November 10-12, 2020. As with all Wexner Summits, the intervening year is a time for you to double down with strategic partners to advance work that speaks to the challenge of this Summit.
*Our 4 Summits to date have been convened to address the following issues:
(Re)Imagining the Israel-North American Jewish Community Relationship (launched 2016)
Social Justice (launched 2016)
Civil Discourse (launched 2017)
Accelerator (launched 2019)

Les Wexner, founder of The Wexner Foundation and chairman and CEO of LBrands, has issued a statement regarding Jeffrey Epstein.
Sexual abuse and trafficking is abhorrent and when it involves minors, all the more so. It runs contrary to every value we believe in and teach, especially the fundamental tenet that all human beings are created in God's image. This is an individual who utterly twisted and tossed aside that sacred notion. We are sickened by Mr. Epstein's behavior.
Rabbi Sharon Barr Skolnik will serve as the new leader for the Wexner Service Corps.
