Training American-Jewish Leadership for the 21st Century

By Sidney Schwarz

Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA), Spring 1991

Schwarz writes about his involvement in the Panim El Panim High School -- a program that helps students relate Judaism to social issues confronting their local and global communities -- and his motivation for spearheading a new program for Jewish high school students called The Washington Institute for Jewish Leadership and Values, an educational foundation dedicated to the renewal of Jewish life through tikkun olam, Torah and civic engagement. He argues that discussing political and social issues with Washington officials, policy makers and leaders in the context of Jewish values will positively impact a new generation of American-Jewish youth.
