Summer 2023 Community Leadership Program

The Choosing People: What are the Core Commitments of Modern Judaism and Zionism?

During our summer 2023 Community Leadership Program in Jerusalem, our community of dedicated leaders and learners explored the Jewish commitments that define our religious, spiritual, and communal lives. 

  • What are the core religious and spiritual commitments that define modern Judaism?
  • How do we engage ideas of obligation, sacrifice, and belief as modern Jews?
  • What central values inform our relationship to an Israel in transition?

From June 21-28, 2023 nearly 175 North American lay leaders, philanthropic professionals, rabbis, and students challenged themselves to reflect on Jewish meaning, belonging, and obligation with fresh eyes. Learn more about our Community Leadership Program and watch videos from past summers.
