Ben-Gurion Society (BGS)
The Ben-Gurion Society is a national Young Leadership Society sponsored by the Young Leadership Cabinet of the Jewish Federations of North America for young leaders (ages 21 to 45) who make a commitment of $1,000 or more to the Jewish Community Federation’s annual Campaign. Attendance at BGS events requires this commitment.
Join us for our exclusive BGS events which in the past have included Shabbat dinners, wine tasting in Napa, speakers and more. Help grow our community!
About David Ben-Gurion
In 1948, David Ben-Gurion became the face of a great new generation of Jews. Today, the Ben-Gurion Society embodies his legacy; we are young men and women who combine our power, passion, and resources to build a strong and responsible Jewish community, at home, in Israel and around the world.
Check the Young Adult Division calendar for upcoming BGS events.
Profiles: Why do you Give?
Dave Saxe, YAD Board Member
"I give to the Federation because my parents and grandparents instilled in me the importance of philanthropy, tzedakah and tikkun olam. The Federation provides me with the perfect outlet to exhibit these values, bolster the collective good of the local, national and international Jewish community and put my gift to work in targeted areas where they are needed the most."
