Banner_YLA2015DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS: Wednesday, February 13th, 2015

Every year, the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit is pleased to identify and honor three young people from our community for their outstanding leadership skills.

Federation’s Young Leadership Awards acknowledge these role models while seeking to stimulate their continuing participation in Jewish communal affairs.

Under the direction of the Leadership Development department and the Executive office of Federation, the goal of the Young Leadership Awards Committee is to ensure that the very best candidates are considered each year.


SYLVIA SIMON GREENBERG LEADERSHIP AWARD

It recognizes exceptional leadership potential and service to the Jewish community on the part of a young woman.
