Europe Leadership Seminar For Teens
The Europe Leadership Seminar is held annually for our teens aged 16-18. The Seminar offers our youth leadership a once-in-a-lifetime experience to explore their Jewish-Israeli identity as well as learn new leadership skills that will help them succeed throughout their lifetime.
In 2019, 12 of our teens traveled to Prague for 7 days to learn about the city's Jewish history, from the time of the Maharal in the 16th century to present day. They also learned about the relationship between the Czech Republic, formerly Czechoslovakia's relationship with Israel, and that Czechoslovakia sold weapons to Israel that were used to fight in the 1948 Independence War.
Participants also learned about modern leadership and modern leadership models and discussed how different leaders influenced the history of Prague, the Jewish people, and the State of Israel.
Previous seminars have taken place in Vienna, Venice, and Munich.
