Join a Young Adult Society

Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ Societies were founded to support and enhance Jewish life throughout St. Louis by strengthening professional networks, fostering leadership development, and reinforcing your commitment to Jewish values and philanthropy through networking, educational, and cultural programming. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet other talented individuals who share your passion for improving St. Louis and the world through philanthropy and celebrating Jewish culture.


The Professional Society convenes, connects and catalyzes individuals committed to the work of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis based on industry, shared interests, and involvements through high level social, networking, and educational opportunities. Offering another point of access for community involvement, the Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ Professional Society connects, inspires, and engages members of our community so that together we can help individuals in St. Louis and around the world live with dignity, meaning, and purpose.


National Young Leadership Cabinet is Federation’s premier young leadership development program that educates and connects the next generation of global Jewish leaders and philanthropists. Cabinet trains and inspires the most promising young volunteers ages 30-40 for positions of leadership in the Jewish community.

Ben-Gurion Society is an outlet for young philanthropists in the community to express their philanthropic generosity, volunteer for community efforts, receive education on Jewish communal issues, and enhance their leadership skills and knowledge on issues that concern all of us. The Ben-Gurion Society brings people together to make a difference building a brighter Jewish future.
