Inspired Jews. Inspiring Leaders.

How do we create Jewish leaders? The kind of thinkers and doers who will ensure a vibrant
future for the Jewish People? That’s the question at the heart of the Jewish Leadership
Institute’s 30-year mission.
Jewish Leadership Institute (JLI) takes a select group of Jewish young adults to Israel for an in-
depth exploration of Israel and Jewish life. We create a dynamic, pluralistic environment
in which young Jews can seek for themselves what Judaism means in today’s world. The
dynamism of the program is driven by the people who staff the trip and the special participants
whom JLI selects.

Are you ready to explore Judaism and Israel in a whole new way?
