As a star on the hit show “The Big Bang Theory,” an author, blogger and a Ph.D. in neuroscience, Mayim Bialik is certainly a potential role model for young ambitious Jews. Now she’ll be one in an official capacity.

As a co-chair of  Core 18, an entrepreneurial boot camp for 19- to 25-year-olds, Bialik will help “cultivate the next generation of Jewish leaders by providing executive mentoring, traditional Jewish wisdom and social entrepreneurial skills, with a focus on maximizing each fellow’s unique strengths.”

“Core 18 Leaders Lab is a mad scientist’s dream,” Bialik said.

“We bring in emerging Jewish leaders and give them the connections, training and funding they’ll need to experiment with cool new ideas that can change the Jewish landscape.”

Co-chairing with the observant actress are Tal Ben-Shahar, a former Harvard lecturer and Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, former chief rabbi of the United Kingdom.

Those interested in participating should send applications in by October 15. The program will launch in January 2014.
