Immersive Education for Executive Leaders

Encounter offers a range of immersive experiences in the West Bank for senior Jewish leaders and influencers.

Each Intensive Leadership Seminar includes four webinars, a four-day delegation to the region with focused travel in Palestinian communities in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and participation in a cohort-specific listserve. During the travel portion of the program, in a non-politically-prescriptive setting, the cohort meets with a diverse array of Palestinian civil society leaders, business people, negotiators, and grassroots activists for an opportunity to hear and consider the perspectives of those with whom Israel will share her future.
