Diplomatic Seminar for Young Jewish Leaders
The Diplomatic Seminar for Young Jewish Leaders is a study program conducted annually by Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for young Jewish men and women of outstanding leadership potential.

The coming seminar will take place between June 30th - July 11th, 2013 and is open to participants aged 26-37 from Jewish communities around the world.

The Diplomatic Seminar imparts analytical tools for understanding the political and national security challenges facing Israel, and insight into the society, economy and culture of the Jewish-democratic state. The seminar program will include lectures, workshops, cultural events and study tours in order to explore these and other topics and to expose participants to the rich fabric of Israeli life. Particular attention will be paid to challenges facing the Jewish people as a whole: demography and Jewish continuity, the combat against anti-Semitism, and the relationship between Israel and the Jewish Diaspora.

The Diplomatic Seminar for Young Jewish Leaders is conducted under the auspices of the Department for Jewish Communities at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The language of instruction is English.

Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs will cover full board and lodging for participants, as well as the costs of seminar excursions in Israel. Participants are responsible for covering their own travel costs to and from Israel.

Participation in the Diplomatic Seminar is competitive. Completed registration forms should be submitted to the nearest Israeli Embassy or Consulate not later than April 15, 2013.
