Welcome to NAGID 360°, the leadership institute of the Charleston Jewish community. Nagid is a Hebrew word meaning "leader," and in this dynamic group experience, local Jewish professionals network and directly impact the future of our greater Charleston Jewish community. By taking a 360° view, you will explore our diverse, vibrant and growing city with important role models and leaders. Eligible candidates are young professionals (30's and 40's) seeking opportunities to grow their leadership, business and Jewish communal knowledge and skills, while meeting like-minded people and having fun! But that's not all. Participation in this cohort also means joining an elite network of mentors and peers, gaining access to VIP events and receiving subsidies for conventions and trips around the world and in Israel.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
At monthly gatherings from January - June 2017, you will meet with important role models and leaders in the local Jewish community while exploring your passions and navigating all that our local Jewish community has to offer you. By participating in a team project that will make a direct impact on Jewish Charleston, you will learn through experience the skills needed to become a positive and creative community leader. In addition, participants will receive customized communications and invitations to community events and opportunities locally, nationally, in Israel and around the world.
Congratulations to the inaugural cohort of NAGID 360!
