Raising the bar in leadership development, Mizrachi is revolutionizing the recruitment of the next generation of rabbinic and educational leaders to serve world Jewry. Through pinpoint searches in Israel and unique partnerships with local communities we have built a cadre of young and powerful educators, fluent in English and ready to serve and to lead.

Shalhevet, our two-year leadership program, recruits and trains young men and women studying to be educators and rabbis in order to play a plethora of potential educational roles; such as youth movement leaders, campus professionals, heads of school, and organizational and pulpit rabbis.

The program is the only one of its kind in Israel which is run entirely in English. A prerequisite for being accepted to this program is that one must be both fluent in English and passionate about playing a role in English-speaking Diaspora communities.

An additional aspect of this program is our partnerships with Diaspora communities in identifying high-level young men and women in the local community in order to motivate and recruit them to pursuing the critical path of education and/or rabbinic leadership. Many participants come from communities where they are being invested in by the local communities in order to come to Israel, study and receive training in order to return to serve their respective communities.
