Leadership Training Programs


Quest is an intensive two-semester undergraduate leadership training program. To help students stay focused on the importance of their work and the values driving their leadership, the Quest experience has culminated with missions abroad, including to Israel, during which participants worked on volunteer projects and met with a diverse cross-section of Jewish communities and their leaders.

Quest students not only graduate from the program with additional leadership skills, but continue their engagements by taking on their own projects that display their leadership potential.

Women’s Leadership Fellowship

The Women’s Leadership Fellowship Program supports the development of the next generation of female leaders for the Jewish community. This fellowship caters to select students at Stern College who exhibit outstanding leadership initiative and qualities. The fellowship curriculum includes a plethora of female and male guest speakers who are distinct from one another both in terms of their backgrounds as well as in their various Jewish communal professional or lay roles. Speakers have included:

  • Dr. Erica Brown, writer, educator and scholar-in-residence for the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington
  • Bracha Rutner, Yoetzet Halacha at the Riverdale Jewish Center and a Talmud and Halacha teacher in Yeshiva of Flatbush
  • Mem Bernstein, trustee of both the Avi-Chai and Keren Keshet foundations

As part of the fellowship, Fellows have created a leadership training program for high school students at the Samuel H. Wang Yeshiva University High School for Girls.The Women's Leadership Fellowship program is generously sponsored by the Covenant Foundation's Signature Grant and The Ambassador Alfred H. Moses Women's Leadership Initiative.
