What does an organization need to do in order to be part of next year’s cohort?

Our growth model looks at individuals and at Jewish professional organizations. The model we are using in our pilot year is based on local coordinators designated by our community partners. If you are interested in participating in next year’s 248 cohort please reach out to us and we will do our best to find a model that fits our situation.

Is there a financial obligation to participate?

Yes. A participation fee and a travel component. Local Jewish community organizations (Jewish Federations in most cases) who join 248 are able to determine both these costs for their participants. 

What are the requirements? Do I have to already be involved in my local Jewish community?

We are looking for Doers. People who are willing to invest time and effort to get to know more about our Jewish collective and to act in order to strengthen it. If you are a passionate, self motivated action taker and you care about what it means to be Jewish in today’s world, we want you with us.

What is the monthly time commitment? 

We estimate between 8-15 hours per/month but Doing tends to go with passion and passion leads people to invest more time as it grows...
