The FJL London Internship offers the opportunity to spend four weeks in London to a select grouping of Jewish student leaders from communities across Eastern and Central Europe. The programme has been made possible through the generosity of Programme Patron, Ambassador Ronald S. Lauder. Participating students will live in London, during which time our daily seminars will explore issues of community, leadership and Jewish perspectives on a host of highly relevant legal, political and social issues associated with the modern world. There will also be ample touring of the city, as well as networking opportunities with communal and professional leaders.
Past FJL Participants
In addition to the undoubtedly fantastic internship, I met a great group of people. On the FJL trip I made some fantastic friends, several of whom even came from right across the country up to St Andrews for a Scotland Jsoc ball!

The FJL programme not only showed me how symbiotic the relationship between the political context and Jewish leadership can be, but it also affected me personally to want to embrace these ideas and act on them.
