Welcome to Ner LeElef
Throughout the world, Jewish communities have seen a significant attrition in their numbers through intermarriage and assimilation. At the same time, wherever highly motivated, energetic, bnei torah have invested efforts in these communities, the results have been very encouraging in raising the level of Jewish identity and observance. What has become quite clear is that high caliber, Jewish leadership is the single most significant factor in generating growth and vibrancy in communities; even in communities which had never experienced strength and dynamism in their past histories.
Ner LeElef was established in order to create the quality leadership necessary to help develop and guide these communities effectively. Since its inception in 1998, and now withjust under 1200 couples in the field, Ner LeElef has established itself as a major force working to promote Jewish learning and vibrancy. It is the single largest source of Jewish leadership training in the world, thereby providing critical manpower and resources worldwide to the Rabbinate, Jewish Educational institutions at all age levels, and outreach to the growing numbers of Jews who have no affiliation with any Jewish institution. Ner Le’Elef seeks to develop and focus the passion and talents of bnei torah who could become Jewish leaders. They possess a deep love for Jews and Judaism, a deep and broad knowledge of our heritage, with the ability to effectively transmit this knowledge and passion to others. Furthermore, they have a serious commitment to rebuilding Jewish life, community by community one person at a time.
