Do you know an outstanding high school student who is interested in Jewish advocacy?

Leaders for Tomorrow (LFT) is an award-winning leadership development opportunity that trains young Jewish leaders to advocate on behalf of the Jewish people, Israel, and human rights around the world.

JCRB|AJC is currently accepting applications from outstanding rising high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors who are interested in Jewish advocacy for this year’s LFT program, beginning in Fall 2020.

JCRB|AJC joins Jewish communities across the nation in expressing our grief over the tragic death of George Floyd, who was murdered in broad daylight by police in Minneapolis.
