Wexner Heritage Program The Wexner Foundation

Posted By on August 22, 2022

The 2,300 Alumni of the Wexner Heritage Program are top lay leaders at the local, national and international level. In the 35 cities where we have convened WHP cohorts, virtually every Jewish communal organization continues to be supported by our Alumni. They become presidents or chairs of synagogues, Federations, JCCs, Hillels, day schools, camps and more; they often are founders or chairs of allocations or annual campaigns. They serve on the boards of JFNA, 70 Faces Media, the Foundation for Jewish Camp, International Hillel, AIPAC and J Street; The Shalom Hartman Institute, Pardes, Hadar and every US rabbinical seminary; the Jewish Education Project, Prisma, the JDC and so many more.

Alumni support NGOs across the spectrum in Israel and internationally and also chair the American side of those NGOs. They have founded and continue to support virtually every Limmud or Jewish Film Festival or Jewish and/or Holocaust Museums. They may see the need for a new organization and start it; they may see the need for a new way of doing something within an existing organization, or a constructive merger, and they implement it. While the Wexner Heritage program aims to transform Jewish lay leaders, our Alumni are in turn prepared and charged to go out and transform their communities and the Jewish world. They are bolstered by the Foundations network, staff and our ongoing programs and platforms for Alumni.

While Alumni of the Wexner Heritage program clearly are diverse, they share some important overarching values:
