Local Groups

Local group associations foster networking, skill-building, career enhancement, collaboration and an appreciation of the magnitude of career opportunities in Jewish communal service.

In communities and regions across North America, thousands of participants gain an understanding of how their skills and knowledge can be transferable from organization to agency to enhance their careers and advance the Jewish community.

Local groups help recruit and retain quality professionals, expanding an awareness of the totality of practice and new developments. Talent and leadership are recognized and rewarded, providing gratification and personal meaning to career choices and collegial relationships.
