Bringing Jewish leaders together to bridge communities globally

The Kaplan Leadership Initiative equips promising Jewish leaders from the Former Soviet Union, Europe and Latin America with the knowledge, skills and support they need to build strengthen and grow their own Jewish communities.

Each Kaplan Leadership Initiative cohort consists of regional programs, run in the Former Soviet Union, Europe and Latin America. Each regional program includes 3 regional gatherings, each focusing on a major theme in leadership and management while integrating Jewish content and exploring the vibrant Jewish life of each region.

In addition, all regional groups gather for a week-long global seminar, where fellows will network, share experiences and strengthen global Jewish leadership identity.
