2018 Summer Community Leadership Program
Derech Eretz: Building Character and Building Society

June 20 – 27, 2018

More than 130 participants joined us in 2018 for a timely exploration of character development and ethical leadership in the Jewish tradition, and how Jewish principles can inform our conversations.

They discussed how our societies in America and in Israel are falling short of achieving our ethical aspirations. The demise of civil discourse, widespread cynicism about democratic principles, and misbehavior by flawed leaders were a few of the central symptoms of this gap between our professed values and our lived reality that were discussed.

Speakers, panelists, and participants discussed how Jewish values can inform our conversation about the dilemmas posed by this widening gap.
