The Machon L’Madrichei Chutz La’aretz, the institute for Youth Leaders from Abroad, was founded in 1946. The goal of this intense programme is to strengthen the leadership skills of the individual with informal educational training while at the same time emphasising content with the formal study of Judaism, Zionism, Jewish History, Hebrew and Israeli society. The Machon has a great reputation based on its significant history and prestige. The programme is widely renowned for producing the leaders of UK Jewry.
This four month Jerusalem Studies course run by the Jewish Agency has participants from many of the British Zionist Youth Movements, and aims to create a body of future leaders in the Jewish community who together can make change. The mixture of movements represented in the programme has two distinct advantages. Participants are challenged by peers with differing ideologies and able to gain a broader perspective. In addition, the social breadth this offers remains with graduates through university and beyond.
There is no additional cost for Machon
