Fellowship for Emerging Leaders
Applying Jewish Wisdom /
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 Rabbi Ariel Burger—one of Wiesel’s mentees—the Institute piloted the ethics-based Fellowship for Emerging Leaders, in 2021. Rooted in Wiesel’s core teachings, this 15-month-long cohort program helps leaders cultivate introspection, collaboration, and skills to influence their communities towards moral action.
