In 2020, The Mandel Center for Leadership is offering new leadership opportunities for Federation’s partner agencies, synagogues and other Jewish organizations throughout the Palm Beaches. Now our entire community can benefit from one-on-one coaching, training, workshops and assistance developing current and future community leaders.

Any partner agency or individual interested in services should contact Whitney Cherner, Senior Director of the Mandel Center, at whitney.cherner@jewishpalmbeach.org.
