Millstone Leadership Initiatives
Jewish Federation of St. Louis supports the work of our Jewish community by engaging new leaders and welcoming new professional staff, providing training and individualized coaching, and strengthening connections among both professionals and lay leaders of Jewish organizations, schools, and congregations.
Millstone Leadership 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. JProStL professional development is also supported by the Barry Rosenberg Fund for Professional Excellence.
