Applications being accepted for the Anti-Defamation League’s Manhigim Institute

The Manhigim (Leaders) Institute is a program conducted by the San Diego Regional office of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). It is a highly regarded, nationally recognized Jewish teen leadership development program for students in the 10th and 11th grades.

Since its inception in 2000, the Anti-Defamation League‘s Manhigim Institute has successfully helped to develop over 450 strong Jewish leaders, attending some of the most prestigious universities in the United States and abroad. The Manhigim Institute is an eight-month program designed for 10th and 11th grade Jewish high school students, to educate Jewish youth on the Anti-Defamation League’s mission to fight anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry in the United States and abroad. 

The program is designed to help build and promote bridges of communication, understanding, and respect among diverse groups. The Manhigim Institute provides San Diego Jewish teens with the practical tools to defend democratic ideals, protect civil rights, and serve justice to all citizens through information, education, and development of enhanced Israel advocacy skills.

We are very pleased that this year the San Diego Jewish Academy will be giving ‘Honors’ designation credit in their Jewish studies program to students who complete some additional course requirements.

Manhigim classes are held once a month on  

Wednesdays and Thursdays, 5:00 - 7:30 p.m. 
 at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center.
