Wexner Foundation Programs strive for excellence in Jewish learning and leadership.

Over the past 30 years, The Wexner Foundation has become known as the preeminent organization for developing and educating leaders in Jewish communities in North America and public service leaders in Israel. Just as the Jewish wedding ceremony culminates in seven blessings, The Wexner Foundation trains leaders through seven core leadership programs: Wexner Heritage Program, Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program, Wexner Israel Fellowship, Wexner Service Corps, Wexner Senior Leaders, Wexner Field Fellowship, and Wexner Summits. Review a snapshot of each program here or learn more about them at the links below.
