Federation Leadership Institute (FLI) is proud to be a premier leadership program in the South Jersey Jewish community. FLI is the epicenter of networking and knowledge for our entire Federation and Family of Agencies system. Enhance your professional and lay leader skills while gaining knowledge and leadership tools through a Jewish lens. 


This exclusive experience is for key leaders in our South Jersey Jewish community. Those nominated into this program offer expertise and perspective integral to improving and growing our Federation Family.


We have assembled an extraordinary lineup this year. Participation in all sessions is expected. Your investment of time will be well worth the knowledge you gain.
