Interested in being a leader in Young Judaea? Thinking about being a madrich/a in a Young Judaea summer camp? Considering a leadership position at school or in an organization? Gesher Leadership is for you.

Before heading off to Israel, spend five days with your friends back at TY learning critical leadership skills and taking on leadership roles in camp. Together you will prepare, plan and help lead all elements of the first Shabbat at TY and more. Of course you will also have traditional camp experiences including Saturday night Rikud, peulat erev, and time to just chill with your old and new friends while you prepare to head off to Israel together on Gesher Israel! Before registering, you must complete a short application and be accepted into the program. The program is designed for those taking on leadership roles.
