Throughout Jewish history, there have been many inspiring leaders, from ancient to modern, from diplomats to artists. Among the many leaders that have influenced our people, Theodor Herzl is one of those great individuals whose dream/vision became a reality, that we are still living to this very day.
As an Israel Engagement program, My Herzl is aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of Theodor Herzl’s life, his unique leadership qualities and the sustainability of his dream - a state for the Jewish people.
Herzl offers us a rare example of how to take action, and to fight for what we believe in, to use our energy, talents, and skills towards what we care most about. We are continuing to live his legacy of leadership and the fight for Jewish Rights in our Jewish land.
