The Solomon Leadership Program expresses its steadfast commitment to instilling values of morality through education.
We at the Solomon Leadership Program have embraced the role of education against hate and ignorance. We serve all young potential leaders, regardless of race, religion, or background. Our program instills the Eight Pillars of Moral Character and Leadership in our students through a comprehensive 6-month high school program. By nurturing the ethical character of future leaders, we equip them with the strength to confront and defeat hate before it can take root. The transformative power of education is highly effective in shaping minds and hearts and building a society founded on kindness, respect, dignity, freedom of religion, and the pursuit of happiness.
Solomon sends prayers for the strength and resilience of the Jewish community and the State of Israel. We hope that all people of conscience, regardless of their faith, rise against the flames of terror and cruelty displayed by Hamas and extinguish them with the light of education, goodness and understanding.
A battle is waged every day within every human being. King Solomon described the human condition as a “small city” over which two kings are constantly struggling for dominion: the mission-oriented soul and the self-oriented soul, each wishing to impress its vision and goals upon the individual. And as is the case with conventional warfare, the battles are fought in many different arenas, each arena requiring a unique Strategy, style of combat, and ammunition.
Kabbalistic teachings reveal that even those elements that seem to be battling us, they too are praying for our success. Their purpose is only to uncover within us the enormous powers required to defeat them. And in their heart of hearts, they too are waiting and hoping to be vanquished.
A recognition of this truth allows a person to be involved in the most intense of internal battles and remain unrattled.
