Are you hiring or promoting a new professional? Give them the opportunity to expand their professional skills, increase their Jewish knowledge, learn from their peers, network and explore.
The purpose of the Friedman Fellowship is to build the capacity of DFI and the Baltimore Jewish community to attract, develop, and retain high quality professionals who will lead and deliver services of excellence. Goals include:
Friedman Fellows are nominated by their organizations and if selected, receive $5,000 to use over a two year period of time on professional development opportunities. In this way they improve their competencies and Jewish learning to advance their careers in the Jewish communal field and provide exemplary service to their organization.
The executive director will nominate a candidate for the Friedman Fellowship on behalf of their organization by identifying an employee in the field 6 months – 3 years or less, with potential for exceptional talent and a commitment to work in the Jewish communal field. The selection committee will take into consideration both the position and the candidate as it pertains to the criteria on the application.
Please note: Save the blank nomination form first, before filling it out. Then send as an attachment by email to Cindy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, save your responses in a word document as back-up before sending.
