YAD encourages the next generation to impact, improve, and lead our Jewish community. We facilitate events and workshops based on the philosophies of our Jewish roots while incorporating innovative ideas of today’s young adults. We believe in embracing our customs and beliefs of our people while taking advantage of opportunities ahead to ensure a Jewish tomorrow.
YAD Leadership Programs
Rishon, a group of young adults invited to learn about our community’s agencies, develop leadership skills, and help plan and run Super Sunday. Rishon, first in Hebrew, is YAD’s first level of leadership development and is a pre-requisite for membership on the YAD Cabinet and other leadership groups and programs.
YAD Cabinet, committed leaders planning and leading the community’s young adult outreach and fundraising efforts. Interested in helping with a YAD event or program? Contact us.
HINENI, a Jewish values-based innovative Fellowship designed to give the most promising young volunteers the insight and skills that will help them in their personal and professional lives, and empower them to lead the Jewish community into the future. HINENI is by invitation only, and concludes with a special mission to Israel.
