Who We Are:

The Young Leadership Division is a dynamic group of people - ages 25 to 45 - who are committed to building a stronger Jewish community in Greater Stamford, Israel and throughout the world through community involvement, education and fundraising. YLD offers many exciting ways to get involved and get connected, including: fun social events; stimulating educational programs; and fulfilling leadership positions.

YLD also serves as the focal point for powerful philanthropic giving. Each financial gift made through YLD supports a wide variety of relief agencies helping the needy throughout our global community.

Ben Gurion Society

The Ben-Gurion Society is a national Young Leadership Society sponsored by the Young Leadership Cabinet of the United Jewish Communities (UJC) for young leaders (ages 25 to 45) who make a commitment of $1,000 or more to the Jewish Community Federation’s annual Campaign. Attendance at any of the BGS events requires this commitment.  In Stamford, we extend participation in local BGS events for households who are giving at this level.
