About Us

Our Mission

The Young Leadership Division of the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago is committed to building a better Jewish community in Chicago, Israel, and throughout the world. We achieve this mission by raising funds for JUF's agencies and initiatives, and by offering a variety of educational, leadership and social events for young adults between the ages of 22 and 40ish.

JUF/Federation is one of the largest non-profit social welfare institutions in Illinois, providing critical resources that bring food, refuge, health care, education and emergency assistance to 300,000 Chicagoans of all faiths and two million Jews around the world. JUF/Federation funds a network of nearly 70 agencies and programs that care for people at every stage of life, regardless of the ability to pay.
