Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Young Leadership Israel Advocacy Seminar

CJPAC is the proud co-sponsor, along with Canada-Israel Committee and United Israel Appeal, of the Young Leadership Israel Advocacy (YLIA) Seminar.  The seminar, tailor-made for a select group of young adults (25 – 39) from across Canada, provides the tools, materials, and political connections to participate in the Canadian political arena and advance the pro-Israel agenda. The YLIA Seminar enables the next generation of the organized Jewish community leadership to be exposed to and interact with Canadian parliamentarians and senior government officials, while cementing their commitment to community.

YLIA 2007 culminated in a mission to Israel August 19 – 26.  Click here to see pictures from the trip.

These young leaders are effective political advocates in their communities.  CJPAC is working to place them on campaigns and strategy teams.

If you know a young leader interested in applying for the Young Leadership Israel Advocacy Seminar 2008, please contact Rachel Chertkoff at
