Black and Jewish Leaders of Tomorrow

Black and Jewish Leaders of Tomorrow (BJLT) will convene a cohort of 50 Black and/or Jewish college students in a dynamic leadership forum in Atlanta, Georgia in April 2024. This program will feature expanded curriculum content reflecting the intersectionality of Black and Jewish identities, which will include a dedicated training module addressing the Black Jewish experience and providing tools to combat the unique intersection of racism and antisemitism, and raise awareness among Black and Jewish college students about diversity within the Jewish community and the unique needs of Black Jewish individuals. Perspectives shared by Black Jewish college students in subsequent interviews will then be integrated into the curriculum of the larger program, Black and Jewish Leaders of Tomorrow. In partnership with regional Hillels and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), this project aims to understand and address the experiences and needs of young adult Jews of Color in the Southern U.S. region.
