Leatid fosters dialogue and debate key issues among leaders in a positive environment where different opinions are exchanged and respected.

Leatid provides a variety of training programs led by accomplished speakers and experts in which participants from diverse backgrounds work together (big &small communities, different Jewish background, from West and East) and exchange experiences and develop a vision for the future of their respective communities. Leatid Europe training seminars are interactive workshops, blending theory with concrete cases. The content is articulated around three main subjects: Jewish Issues, Community Development, and Leadership. Each subject focuses on concrete issues facing today’s Jewish leaders.

Today Leatid Europe has been integrated into the framework of the JDC International Centre for Community Development, where it serves as the Centre’s training arm, conducting sessions and seminars in Oxford and across Europe.
