Powered by the Pauline Foster Women’s Philanthropy Leadership Institute and facilitated by Rabbi Yael Ridberg and Heather Wolfson, Yesod merges Judaic text study, leadership theory, and experiential application. Yesod is designed to nurture and develop empowered and skilled leaders while helping to build a pipeline of outstanding future volunteer leadership. This highly selective program brings together a collaborative cohort of diverse Jewish professionals, representing the broad array of organizations and affiliations within the San Diego Jewish community.
"The group of women in YESOD is incredible! Everyone has such impressive backgrounds and I am so humbled and honored to be a part of this group. I can already sense what a life-changing experience this is going to be. I can’t wait to be inspired!” - Emily Hirsekorn
Please join us in wishing all of our participants a meaningful year ahead.
