Welcome to the 'Geula' program! We are delighted that you are considering joining our unique initiative aimed at developing leadership qualities in young Jewish women. Go through this simple registration process to share your experiences and ambitions with us. Your passion and participation could be the very element that brings fresh ideas and directions to Jewish communities worldwide.

    Objectives of the Geula program

    To train and develop the leadership skills of young women in the Jewish world

    Encourage and strengthen the connection and cooperation between the leadership of young women from the Diaspora and Israel

    Encourage the development of innovative women-led ventures.


    Research conducted between 2016-2018 in France, the USA, Argentina, Russia, and Ukraine has shown:

    Women demonstrate greater responsibility when assessing the prospects of Aliyah and are often the initiators and driving force behind the decision to repatriate at all stages.

    Women are more actively involved in Jewish community life than men.

    Contemporary young women are driven to prove themselves in society; they often initiate socially significant projects and seek to develop their leadership skills and competencies.

    Commitment to the program

    Participants will be required to complete the program activity throughout the entire year, which will include

    • A two-week seminar in Israel - at the expense of the World Zionist Organization (the seminar will be in English).
    • Participation in individual and group training.

    Program framework

    The program is designed to develop and encourage leadership for Zionism among young women.
