Leadership Development

Frank Stavis Leadership Forum

Frank Stavis Leadership Forum focuses on young leaders involved in the Mandell Jewish Community Center and/or the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford.

Frank Stavis personified leadership. Committed to the continuity of quality leadership in the Jewish community, Frank mentored and nurtured several generations of new leaders as past president of both the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford and the Mandell Jewish Community Center.

The Frank Stavis Leadership Forum continues Frank’s legacy through a variety of learning experiences intended to help develop the next generation of community leaders.

Funding, in part, is provided through the Frank Stavis Memorial Leadership Fund. These funds were raised in memory of Frank and the good works he did on behalf of the Jewish community and are held at the Jewish Community Foundation.

Community Leadership Initiative

The Community Leadership Initiative (CLI), sponsored by the Commission on Jewish Education & Leadership of the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford, helps enhance the leadership skills and commitment of leaders about to assume senior level positions at their agency or congregation.

This program offers high-level curriculum that provides participants with a perspective on Jewish values of leadership and actively engages them in considering their own role and commitment as a leader. CLI’s goals are to develop a core of well-trained and highly committed lay leaders expected to assume senior-level positions in agencies and congregations within the next two years.
