Young Adults

We serve as a connector for all things young and Jewish, we help native Cincinnatians and newcomers find meaning and guild relationships in all facets of life, from professional and religious to cultural and communal.


During the summer of 2018, the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati’s Young Adult Division (YAD) announced the launch of a brand new website and app called Cincinnati Vine. Cincinnati Vine is a central interactive hub to connect young adults to each other and the Cincinnati Jewish community in an organic, grassroots way. 


Apart from the creation and maintenance of the site, YAD will take a hands-off approach, giving young adults the platform to curate content themselves. Young adults will be able to create meet-ups, post information about events, get engaged in social action, and meet other young adults through Cincinnati Vine, with the goal being to build a strong community and create rootedness for Jewish Millennials and younger Gen Xers.

Young Adult Division

The Young Adult Division (YAD) represents the next generation of Jewish leadership. Our community's young professionals have the means and the energy to effect change, both locally and globally.

LEAD (Lead, Educate, Act and Develop) was created by the Jewish Federation as a way to educate young professionals in Cincinnati about all that the community offers, ultimately preparing each participant to take a leadership position within the Jewish community.  Learn more
