    Inspired by the legacy of Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel, the Witness Institute strives to create a more compassionate and just world by sparking moral activism. Led by Wiesel’s close student, Ariel Burger, the Witness Institute first piloted their ethics-based fellowship in 2021. This 15-month-long program is rooted in Wiesel’s core teachings and designed to help leaders cultivate the muscles of reflection, compassion, courage, and creative problem-solving.
