Building a Base of Reform Jewish Leadership: An Impact Study of Three Youth Programs

By Samantha M. Pohl

Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion School of Jewish Communal Service, April 2010

Studies have long confirmed that Jewish educational opportunities greatly affect individuals' Jewish identities. Despite a plethora of research on the topic, there are significant gaps in the field with regard to the Reform Movement. The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), through its youth movement NFTY, sponsors three leadership tracks: Kutz Camp, Regional Board, and North American Board. This study asks what impacts these programs have on young adult alumni and what types of leadership roles young alumni assume within the Reform Movement and in the greater Jewish community.
