National Young Leadership Cabinet

National Young Leadership Cabinet is the premier leadership and philanthropic program of Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA). The program is designed for dedicated men and women, ages 30 to 45, from across the U.S. and Canada who are deeply committed to building a strong, vibrant future for the Jewish people.


Cabinet not only changes the world—it is a life-changing Jewish journey.

Embarking on a Cabinet journey, means travelling in the company of likeminded philanthropists. Learning from, and beside, renowned thought leaders.  Engaging together, in the Jewish Federation system’s most comprehensive, and prestigious, leadership-development curriculum. Becoming outstanding, Jewish communal leaders.

You’re also forging lasting bonds and creating a close, lifelong network of friends.

Through inspiring annual retreats, conferences and unparalleled access to an extraordinary group of spiritual and philanthropic leaders. Through missions to Israel and diverse places like Greece, Ethiopia, Budapest, St. Petersburg, Morocco and Argentina. Through witnessing firsthand how your work through the Federation system touches more Jewish lives than any other group on the planet.

During the course of this unique program, Cabinet amplifies your leadership skills. Educates you on building strong local and global Jewish communities.  And how to care for the most vulnerable among us—here at home, in Israel and around the world.

Embark on the Cabinet journey. Strengthen the Jewish community. Now and for generations to come.
