WUPJ Center for Leadership Development and Education

Our ten day seminars inspire hundreds of Jewish learners a year, infusing them with excitement and supplying them with the tools necessary to explore new paradigms of Judaism, to seek out new partnerships with Progressive Jewish communities, and to foster entrepreneurial approaches to Jewish learning and leadership.


These intensive seminars are designed for adults seeking a deep engagement with Jewish learning in the spiritual and historic center of our people. Groups study and explore both in Jerusalem and around Israel. Close attention is paid to developing practical Judaic learning skills as well as to examining spirituality and personal growth for the benefit of both the individual as well as the community.
