Should I Stay or Should I Go? Young Women Professionals And Jewish Organizations

By Rebecca Metzger

Ma'yan, Spring 2001

The author describes the systematic problems in the management of Jewish organizations that cause young Jews and especially young Jewish women to leave for the general not-for-profit sector. In addition to a structuring that severely limits any upwards mobility, women face a glass ceiling (with only 5% of Jewish foundations versus 51% of secular foundations having a female CEO), and all young employees must deal with sexism, insularity, and a lack of recognition, financially and otherwise, for their work and contributions.
