By training leaders from within communities, we build credibility country by country and ensure that our work is sustainable.

Project Kesher’s Advanced Leadership Training offers a Jewish-content based curriculum.  We prepare Jewish women and girls to take on major leadership roles in communities throughout the region.  The two-year program integrates academic, experiential and field training. 

Participants learn Jewish values and are trained to:

  • Pilot projects
  • Manage projects
  • Facilitate substantive areas of programming
  • Advocate at the local, regional and national levels
  • Manage media relations
  • Fundraise
  • Secure resources 

Upon completion of the Advanced Leadership Training program, graduates continue to get support from Project Kesher staff and peer mentors through our on-line networking group. 

More than 600 of our graduates (many of them under the age of 30), have become professional and lay leaders in the Jewish communities in this region.
