Federation seeks new corps of young adult volunteers

The Jewish Federation of Pinellas and Pasco Counties is seeking young adults up to age 45 to apply during the 2018-19 fiscal year to become Federation Fellows.

The program is open to individuals living in Pinellas and West Pasco County.

Participants selected will be passionate about getting involved with the Jewish community, have a strong interest in visiting Israel and be willing to volunteer 10 hours of their time per month in a variety of on- and off-site activities (some done from home) in support of the Federation’s mission to build community.

The program includes participation in the annual Young Leadership Mission to Israel, offered by the Jewish Federations of North America, which is a nine-day program in early July each year. Volunteer service will begin in September and conclude in June. All costs of the mission are covered by the Federation.

Interested community members should submit a personal statement to Emilie Socash by Aug. 7 that includes thoughts on why the applicant would like to participate as a Fed Fellow, what the applicant brings to the table, and if the applicant has been to Israel before. A rigorous interview process will follow for finalists. Submissions and inquiries should be emailed to

My mother was born in Israel,

My mother was born in Israel, and taught me a lot about what it means to be a Jew, my greatest influence was my grandfather who survived the Holocaust, and served in the Israeli army. I've been to Israel on birthright eleven years ago and I had the time of my life!!!!
