Noteworthy Jewish Central New Yorkers

Six Under 36

The Marjorie Oberdorfer Bronner Pierson and Theodore Pierson Family Endowment for the Jewish Future “Six Under 36” program celebrates six noteworthy Jewish Central New Yorkers, all 36 years old or younger, who make Central New York and the larger community better by bringing remarkable energy and new ideas to religion, philanthropy, the arts, learning, social action and inclusion.  These talented young adults are changing our community for good by building a more just society and creating community in innovative ways.

Six young Jewish Central New Yorkers, chosen by a panel of community members from nominations made by the community, will each be awarded a donor advised fund of $1,000 at the Jewish Community Foundation of Central New York to be used to support an organization with which they have worked or a cause they support.  The “Six Under 36 Program” is run under the auspices of the Jewish Federation of Central New York.

The Central New York community is invited to nominate their favorite Jewish movers and shakers, advocates, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and community organizers below no later than February 1, 2024. Self-nominations are accepted.

Nominations due February 1, 2024
