✨ Meet the Class of 2025 Brawerman Fellowship Cohort #10 ✨

Through the Brawerman Fellowship, we develop and sustain a talent pool of Jewish young leaders for our community in perpetuity. The Fellowship provides a $40,000 college scholarship and participation in a larger program that builds leadership skills and further strengthens Fellows' connection to Jewish life through retreats, a trip to Israel, and other overseas opportunities. Each year, we select four high school seniors who demonstrate academic strength, financial need, and a deep commitment to leadership, community service, and Jewish engagement to become Brawerman Fellows.
