Wisdom Pairings

Real People, Real Conversations – That’s Wisdom Pairings


Federation believes in the power of relationships so our Innovation department launched Wisdom Pairings, an intentional community for personal connection and growth. Whether you consider yourself to be a mentor, a mentee, or perhaps somewhere in between, you will find emerging and experienced professionals ready to share their stories and listen as well. At Wisdom Pairings, we are all inspired to build stronger networks and create a deeper sense of belonging.

Apply today for the opportunity to share your experiences with a diverse group of Jewish professionals! Pairings will take place based on the intersections of shared passions, expertise, life journeys and interests.

"From our first encounter at the Pairings dinner, I could tell that I was going to benefit from this relationship in the form of personal satisfaction by providing insight, experience and knowledge. I didn't realize that I would also gain a new perspective and insight from another viewpoint and experiences from a new friend." -Past Participant
