LEAD

take your involvement to the next level

Join the International Leadership Network (ILN)

The ILN is the core of our Movement's leadership around the world. This network builds, shapes, and leverages the power of Jewish teens to strengthen our priorities, connect our communities, and develop new leaders. There are so many opportunities for members from every community, regardless of position, grade, or past experience, to raise their hand to help build our Movement.

Please share ILN opportunities with Alephs or BBGs that you think can make a difference in our Order. Everyone should have the opportunity to apply, so spread this to as many of your friends as possible.
