Who is Encounter’s target audience for these executive programs?

Encounter’s Leadership Intensive seminars are designed for senior Jewish communal leaders shaping our community’s engagement with Israel.

Our primary target audiences are: influential pulpit rabbis, Hillel directors, senior leaders of national communal organizations, executive professionals specifically focused on Israel advocacy, thought leaders in Jewish education, lay leaders and philanthropists, and those shaping the Jewish public square on this issue. Each Intensive has a few reserved seats for lay leaders to join the cohort.

Israeli Citizens: Israeli law forbids Israeli citizens from travel to Area A of the West Bank without a permit. Please speak with an Encounter staff person to discuss if there is a program for which you can apply.

PLEASE NOTE: The views expressed in this section of the website are not neces­sarily those of Encounter as an organization. We support the chorus of voices of the Jewish commu­nity in engage­ment with the complex­i­ties of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, so long as they are consis­tent with our core values.
