Don't miss this exciting opportunity to join young Jewish leaders from around the world for thought provoking discussion on issues of importance to the next generation of the Jewish community.
The goal of the B'nai B'rith Young Leadership Network is to support our Jewish communities locally, nationally and globally, bridging the gap between leaders of today and young Jewish leaders of tomorrow. We do this by fighting intolerance, promoting humanitarian causes and delivering social programming for individuals 21-40 in local communities around the world.
Campus Director of The David Project Phillip Brodsky has just been announced as the leader of the "Being an Effective Advocate for Israel" breakout sessions on Saturday, May 3.
Brodsky joined The David Project in June 2010 after graduating from the Hornstein Heller Graduate Program at Brandeis University. As the campus director, Brodsky works with the campus coordinators to reach out to student leaders to help them engage their peers with Israel in new and exciting ways. He believes that every student has the potential to make a difference for Israel and seeks to develop programs that will help students gain the leadership skills to be successful now and in the future.
Before earning his MBA and Master’s in Jewish Professional Leadership at Brandeis, Brodsky was the director of Jewish programming for Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity. With AEPi, Brodsky taught student leaders how to organize successful philanthropic programs, bring Jewish enrichment programming into their chapters and talk about Israel within the fraternity and sorority community. His pro-Israel work while with AEPi was recognized by the Israel on Campus Coalition, AIPAC and the North American Interfraternity Conference. Brodsky grew up in North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He lives in Brookline, Mass., with his wife, Kali.
