It is with pride and great delight that the ALEPH Ordination Program (AOP) announces that rabbinical student Jericho Vincent has been selected by the Wexner Foundation as a member of Class 33 of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program.
The Wexner Foundation trains and inspires leaders in the North American Jewish Community and the State of Israel. Through diverse, cohort-based educational programs, the Foundation invests in promising professionals and volunteers and gives them tools to exercise transformative leadership. Working in partnership with other foundations, philanthropists and communities, the Foundation strengthens North American Jewish life and Israel’s public sector by making their leaders more skilled, visionary and collaborative.
Through the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program, fellowships are awarded each year to outstanding individuals who seek to prepare themselves through graduate training for careers in Jewish Education, Jewish Professional Leadership, Jewish Studies, and the Rabbinate/Cantorate.
The Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program selects exceptional candidates with a strong personal commitment to the Jewish community, a record of demonstrated excellence in academic achievement and the potential to assume significant professional leadership roles in the North American Jewish community.
