About: 

Our Leadership delegation to Poland provides 40 Leadership Accelerator participants from semesters one and two to spend seven days exploring the Jewish past, present and future in Warsaw and Krakow with an expert staff that includes the GLI's Central and Eastern Europe expert and a vastly-experienced Poland tour guide.  The program includes visits to key Shoah sites including Auschwitz and Treblinka.  At the same time, it looks at the challenges and opportunities facing contemporary Polish Jews and considers what leadership might look like in that specific context.  A particular highlight is the opportunity to meet with people of all generations, Jewish and non-Jewish, who are attempting to lead change in Poland today.
