Andy Kirschner is an Associate in the Young Leadership Division at The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
“I just want to get involved.” Working in Young Leadership at The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, I get to hear those words from young Jews across Greater Washington pretty much every day. Well Greater Washington, how do you want to get involved? Where do you want to get involved? Does the idea of supporting the Jewish community now and for the future inspire you? Maybe NeXus is a good place for you to start this next chapter in your Jewish journey.
NeXus is an interactive program that will teach you about the work of The Jewish Federation, further develop your leadership skills and introduce you to other leaders in the DC Jewish community. Through six sessions that run from September through November, you will explore what it means to be an influential Jewish young adult and find ways to make a true impact on the world through your involvement with The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.

Still unsure? Here is what some alumni of the program recently wrote about their experiences:
The program gave me a great opportunity to learn from inspiring speakers-I loved it!
NeXus was a great way to get involved in the DC Jewish community and meet a lot of new people. I would definitely recommend it!
I was impressed with the variety of topics we covered. By the end, I felt like I had a solid understanding of the Federation and its impact in DC. I also think the program is really well organized. All in all, time well spent!
[It’s a] great way to meet people, get involved in the DC Jewish community and learn about Federation! NeXus opened lots of doors both networking and activity-wise – if you have the opportunity to be a part of NeXus, take advantage of it!
