eJewish Philanthropy writes about the Israel leg of the Future Leaders Program. The Ministry of Information and the Diaspora, in conjunction with World ORT and Stephen Muss, launched a new project this year aimed at inspiring and nurturing the next generation of leadership for local Jewish communities across Europe and the Former Soviet Union. An initial cohort of 32 students, representing 18 countries and between 15 and 18 years old, was selected based on the quality of their applications and the dedication that they had already demonstrated to their schools and in their Jewish communities. The three-week summer program in Israel was designed to build on the foundations laid in earlier parts of the program. The Future Leaders participated in classes on developing leadership skills and traveled to many of the historical and cultural sites throughout Israel.
