Aside from day-time internship placements, our New York seminar series brings together prominent professionals and communal leaders with the group, thereby facilitating a meaningful level of engagement with Jewry’s largest and most diverse and vibrant community.
Ahead of the four weeks in New York, the trip will start in Washington DC where the group will meet and hear from some of the most influential policy-makers in the corridors of power who will address questions relating to the application of Judaism in contemporary public policy and the modern world.
Our renowned speakers, along with our in-house educational faculty, provide a thought-provoking analysis of Jewish perspectives on leadership and modernity offering a holistic approach to effective leadership both within the community and beyond.
