With the recent growth of the nonprofit sector worldwide, increased globalization, unprecedented technological advances and the Millennial generation's (born 1981-1996) entry into the workforce, it is likely that the Jewish nonprofit sector is entering a stage of dramatic shifts in organizational structure, culture and practices. This study focuses on the experiences existing Jewish nonprofit organizations have had in effectively integrating the Millennial generation. The current leadership deficit in the Jewish nonprofit sector emphasizes the need for organizations to effectively recruit and retain new, young employees in a professional capacity in order to ensure a solid future. Research, however, suggests that effectively integrating the Millennial generation will necessitate some unique effort.
