A vital resource for our future leaders


The Alpert New Leaders Forum, made possible by the generosity of Barbara and Ray Alpert, is a year long leadership development series for a select group of emerging leaders of the Jewish Community.


The program, sponsored by The Jewish Federation of Greater Long Beach and West Orange County, will prepare participants for lay leadership roles in synagogues, agencies, and other nonprofit organizations.


The chosen participants meet to engage in lively discussions, in-depth dialogue and hands on experiences, led by influential speakers and facilitators. In each session, participants will gain important knowledge that will empower them to be leaders in our community.


Participants will have additional opportunities for social networking, Jewish enrichment, and social action.
