Generation of Change: How Leaders in their Twenties and Thirties are Reshaping American Jewish Life

By Jack Wertheimer

Avi Chai Foundation, September 2010

This report presents the key findings of a team research study conducted under the auspices of The AVI CHAI Foundation to learn about women and men between the ages of 22 and 40 who serve as leaders of Jewish endeavors. As with leadership research generally, the term Jewish leader encompasses a range of activities and roles: Some are leaders because they have spearheaded new initiatives, while others direct the activities of existing groups; some are professionals, and others are volunteers; some are culture shapers, exercising influence through their ideas, their writing, or their performances; others make things happen through their contacts, communications skills and energy. A broad range of Jewish leaders is represented in this report, including activists who eschew the term leadership to describe their own enterprising efforts.
