About YJP

Young Jewish Professionals is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization focused on providing business, educational, and mentoring opportunities for the new generation of Jewish business leaders.

We work to transform the lives of our members by opening doors to a world-class community of business leaders, innovators, and forward thinkers, to mentor and teach through unparalleled educational experiences, upscale conferences, and forums.

YJP exists to attract, develop, and create a community for young professionals who are willing to lead, innovate, and give back to the Jewish and global communities. We help our members continue a remarkable tradition of spearheading change while providing bold ideas and resources to define their future, and Jewish identities, for generations to come.

This premier organization is for young professionals who seek to discover best practices, big ideas, bold vision and a world-class network of trusted peers. If you are under forty and want to be the best in what you do, then this community is for you.


If you are interested in supporting our mission of providing young professionals in our community with leadership, career growth and mentorship opportunities please find more information here.

We greatly appreciate your contribution!
