New course in Jewish leadership

The Oxford Centre for Hebrew and
Jewish Studies has proposed a new
course in Jewish leadership.
The program would involve a year
of study of Jewish Studies in Oxford ,
equivalent to a masters course,
followed by a year of leadership
studies at the Said Business school.
Part of the proposal includes
offering five to ten students from
around the world a full scholarship
to the new course. Centre President
David Ariel described this Global
Jewish Leadership Scholars
Programme as the “Rhodes
scholarship for the Jewish world.”
Ariel added, “There would also be
an option for those already working
in Jewish communities. They could
take the course on a part-time basis,
doing modules in leadership from
Said and in Jewish Studies from us.”
If the proposal is successful it
would be the first degree level course
of this type in Britain.
Ariel hopes to launch the scheme
by 2014. The scholarship is projected
to cost around £500,000.
The Centre currently offers an MSt
in Jewish Studies.
