CEO Judy Alperin Selected for Jewish Nonprofit Leadership Program

Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven CEO Judith Alperin has been named as one of the 20 fellows in Cohort III of the Mandel Institute for Nonprofit Leadership’s (MINL) Executive Leadership Program. She was selected from a pool of nearly 100 leader applicants from Jewish federations, community centers and community relations councils as well as from the American Jewish Committee.

They will begin the two-year program in the beginning of 2021; it includes a virtual kick-off, three seminars in Boston, a study tour in Israel, small-group work, nonprofit management workshops and mentoring opportunities. Learn more about Cohort III fellows at

“We are enormously grateful to all of the program’s applicants. They demonstrate the depth of talent in the federation, JCC, JCRC and AJC networks,” say MINL Director Ted Sasson and Assistant Director Liana Brodsky.

“I am honored to participate in this incredible opportunity. When I applied to the program pre-pandemic I had hoped to explore a broader thought universe and develop a more diverse network to help Greater New Haven as we confronted the challenges and opportunities to ensure a strong future for the Jewish New Haven community. Today, this access to incredible mentors and educators is even more critical and I intend to advantage every moment,” says Alperin.
