Leadership Development: cultivating a cadre of Jewish leaders

We believe in:

Break the Mold. Creative use of technology and film can open new vistas and bring about cutting edge ideas.

Excellence. Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

Leadership: Entrepreneurial leaders are the drivers of change. We strive to create more passionate and empowered Jewish leaders.

Teamwork. We look for the greatness in people and build on their best qualities.

Inclusion. We focus on what unites The Jewish people, rather than what divides us.

Jerusalem U was founded by Rabbi Raphael Shore in 2009 to address the prevalent and growing need to educate and inspire the new generation about Judaism and Israel so that they gain a stronger Jewish identity and an appreciation of their heritage
