J-Fellows • Speaker Series


J-Fellows, Federation’s young leadership development program, is positioned to engage, educate and empower those in their mid-20s to early 40s to take the lead in the Ottawa Jewish community. 
 
The focus of our 2022 J-Fellows Speaker Series is on the application of core Jewish values - like chesed (loving-kindness), tzedakah (justice and philanthropic giving), kol echad (inclusion and dignity for all) and tikkun olam (repairing the world), in our professions. 
 
Our J-Fellows 2022 Co-Chairs are Amanda Shore & Isaac Bushewsky
