The New Voices for Good Fellows from Jewish LearningWorks

By Jenni Mangel, Jewish LearningWorks’ Director of Educational Leadership.

Jewish LearningWorks’ Voices for Good Initiative celebrates Women’s History Month by inviting you to be inspired by great women in our history, and honoring those around us today, including the 15 new participants of our 2024-2026 Voices for Good Fellowship – our third cohort!

We are excited to welcome 9 participants from the Bay Area, 3 from the Pacific Northwest Participants, and another 3 from Denver/Boulder. They will begin their learning and growth journeys with us in the fall, and will become part of a network of incredible alumnae.
