Nearly 100 young professionals and established leaders in the DC-metro area enjoyed a night of networking and an informative panel discussion at the launch of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s ConnectGens program on January 19, 2011.
ConnectGens is a sub-committee of The Network that helps build connections between promising young professionals and established professionals within the Jewish community. These motivated, talented, and promising young Jewish professionals have already made a significant contribution to the community through donating, fundraising, volunteering, and showing the knowledge, skills, and abilities to become effective future lay leaders. The program, co-chaired by Michael Newman and Jason Langsner, was born in Jerusalem during The Federation’s Inaugural Birthright Alumni Leadership Mission. Applications for the 2011 Mission are now available.
