Aside from day-time internship placements, our 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.
Following the four weeks in New York, the group will travel to Washington DC to 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.
Past FJL Participants
While there are many British Jews in positions of responsibility and prominence in the UK, only a handful are involved seriously at a communal level. FJL is playing an essential role in nurturing the next generation of Jewish leaders needed to strengthen our institutions and address important challenges.
Jamie Black, Pro-Israel activist, Cambridge graduate
I am now back in London and thrilled to have the FJL alumni network offering social, business and Jewish themed events. To have finished university but still have an incredible set of connections and opportunities is immensely valuable on both a personal and professional level.
