University of Michigan Jewish Communal Leadership Program (JCLP)


Prepared for Challenge, Poised for Change

The University of Michigan School of Social Work and Frankel Center for Judaic Studies offer a distinctive opportunity for emerging leaders committed to exploring 21st-century Jewish communal possibilities while also addressing broader social concerns.

The Jewish Communal Leadership Program combines thoughtful analysis, hands-on engagement with contemporary communal challenges, and experiential training in non-profit management, preparing students to guide Jewish organizations and communities through times of opportunity, conflict, transition, and growth.

Generous funding is available for all accepted students. Graduates receive an MSW degree and a Certificate in Jewish Communal Leadership.
