JEWISH LEARNING AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
The Wexner Heritage Program is a two-year Jewish study experience with an additional focus on leadership. Each local seminar group consists of 20 outstanding and diverse Jewish volunteer leaders. Serious Jewish learning will unite these individuals, who live in the same community but might otherwise never have worked together. The relationships created among members are the heart of the program.
The Farash Foundation is pleased to partner with the Wexner Foundation in this farsighted initiative. Rochester’s inaugural class of Wexner Heritage Program participants will convene in Spring 2019. During the summer they also will meet with cohorts from other communities.
