Chapter Two

Chair: Beth Sellman

Chapter Two, a 10-month educational and engagement program, recruits women who are at a stage in their lives when they are looking to grow as Jewish women. Geared toward women who are empty nesters, participants learn about themselves, are educated about The Associated and its agencies, take part in experiential learning and hands-on social action and “capture their passion and turn it into action.”

This program is by invitation only. For more information, contact Erica Hobby at 410-843-7507 or ehobby@associated.org.

Dor Tikvah

Chair: Tammy Heyman
Vice Chair: Heather Cohen
“Women of Hope. Leaders for the Future.”
Dor Tikvah is a two-year leadership development program that caters to women ages 30-45 who aspire to hold key positions within The Associated and the Baltimore Jewish community. Dor Tikvah draws its inspiration from the Jewish traditions of tzedakah (social justice) and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Through fundraising, educational programs, community service projects and agency observation experiences, participants develop an understanding of The Associated and Baltimore’s organized Jewish community, the importance of women’s philanthropy and gain an array of leadership skills.

Interested? Learn more about the Dor Tikvah class of 2014-16 now forming. For information, contact Liz Schuman at 410-369-9251 or eschuman@associated.org.

Young Leadership Council (YLC)

Chairs: Sam Andorsky and Atara Frankel
YLC is a two-year leadership development program that focuses on young adults ages 22-39 who aspire to hold key positions within The Associated and the Baltimore Jewish community. Through fundraising, educational programs, community service projects and
agency observation experiences, young professionals develop an understanding of The Associated, Baltimore’s organized Jewish community, and the importance of philanthropy. They also gain an array of leadership skills. It is our hope to provide a subsidized Israel trip the summer this YLC class finishes the two-year program. 

YLC is an application-based program. For more information, please contact Marisa Danto at 410-369-9296 or mdanto@associated.org.
