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 training Jewish leaders in North America and 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, Wexner Israel Fellowship, Wexner Service Corps, Wexner Senior Leaders, Wexner Field Fellowship and Wexner Summits.

Wexner Summits

Wexner Summits provide a platform for alumni across all five of our adult programs to work together to confront major challenges facing the Jewish world. Alumni coalesce around projects and emerge with new allies, inspiration and skill sets to move the dial on urgent issues.

The Wexner Foundation is dedicated to its singular focus of enhancing the leadership skills of its Alumni, Fellows and Members. For additional information, please contact us.
