What is Millstone?

Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ Millstone Institute is a community-wide initiative to engage, develop and inspire leadership in the St. Louis Jewish community. As an initiative of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, we support the work of our Jewish community organizations, cultivate new leaders and strengthen the sense of connection among the staff and volunteers who lead the diverse non-profit, philanthropic, social services, educational and religious institutions that form the fabric of the St. Louis Jewish community. This model of collaboration demonstrated between staff and lay leaders and between organizations has been a model for other communities across the country.

The Institute’s workshops, seminars, and learning opportunities help current professionals, volunteers and board members advance their own leadership and strengthen their organizations.

Key initiatives are JProStl, Fellows Experience, ACCESS Leadership, Presidents’ Circle, and Board Training.

Marci Mayer Eisen is available to facilitate workshops or can direct you to those with the expertise you are seeking. Also, as an ICF (International Coaching Federation) certified leadership coach, Marci’s leadership coaching services are provided at no charge, as a service of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis.

Initiatives are made possible by the generous support of Mont & Karen Levy and the Lubin-Green Foundation, a supporting foundation of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, the Bill Solomon Family, and Mont & Karen Levy. The Annual JProStl Recognition Luncheon is supported by Jonathan & Jennifer Deutsch and Bill Solomon & Family.
