New York, NY— The Jewish Council for Public Affairs ( JCPA) recently announced the fifth cohort of the prestigious JCPA Frank Family Leadership Institute for Emerging Leaders.

The JCPA Fellowship is a mentoring opportunity for emerging leaders in the community relations field who want to be active in the areas of public policy, public affairs, and intergroup/interfaith relations at both the local and national levels. Andrew Fox, a member of Ohef Sholom Temple and United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Community Relations Council, is one of the 13 fellows.

“Younger Jews can and must play a leadership role in Jewish advocacy and community relations,” says David Bernstein, JCPA president and CEO. “We believe that a strong community relations field means a strong and protected Jewish community. This Fellowship provides the training and hands-on experience needed to help those who are committing their time, and who believe Jewish involvement in Tikkun Olam is where they want to focus their leadership,” says Lois Frank, a grantor of the Frank Family Leadership Institute for Emerging Leaders. A past chair of JCPA, Frank formed this Institute with her husband, Larry Frank, in 2014. Twenty three Fellows have completed the program.

This year’s JCPA Frank Fellows:
Ami Abramson, Charleston, N.C.
Leslie Anderson, Atlanta, Ga.
Andrew Fox, Tidewater, Va.
Dori Gerber, Orlando, Fla.
Margo Levin, Reading, Penn.
Eva Lippman, Silicon Valley, Calif.

Thorn Pozen, Washington, D.C.
Dan Rapp, Cincinnati, Ohio

The program includes a mission to Poland to visit Warsaw, Krakow, and Auschwitz/Birkenau; a Leadership Mission to Israel; attendance at JCPA2018 in New York; and educational trainings on issues of importance to the Jewish community relations field.

UJFT’s CRC is one of 125 CRC’s in the nation that together comprise the grassroots of JCPA.
