Wexner Heritage Program

Jewish learning and leadership development for volunteer leaders in North America


Wexner Heritage Alumni: powerful social change agents across North America

The more than 2,000 alumni of the Wexner Heritage Program are top lay leaders at the local, national, and international level. They may be president of their synagogue, Federation or JCC; they may have founded a day school or chair its annual campaign. They may be on the board of JFNA or JDC, chair the American side of NGO’s working for minority rights in Israel, or head their city’s Limmud or Jewish Film Festival. They may see the need for a new organization and start it; they may see the need for a new way of doing something in an existing organization, and they implement it.

While alumni of the Wexner Heritage program clearly are diverse, they share some important overarching values: collaboration, inclusion, a dedication to Jewish text and tradition informing their communal agendas, and excellence. They share top characteristics of great leaders: vision, talent, grit, and optimism.
