The Cardozo-Kagan Jewish Leadership Program at at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya was launched in response to the pressing need for Jewish identity among today’s young generation in Israel. This program was created and is administered by The David Cardozo Academy – headed by its founder and dean, Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo.

Rabbi Cardozo is a prominent lecturer and author who is world-renowned for his highly original insights into Judaism and his ability to communicate the relevance of Jewish values and practice in a complicated world. A native of the Spanish-Portuguese Jewish community of Holland who holds a doctorate in philosophy, Rabbi Lopes Cardozo received rabbinic ordination from the Gateshead Talmudic College and studied in Israel at the Institute for Higher Rabbinical Studies of Chief Rabbi Unterman and at the Mir Yeshiva. In addition to teaching Jewish audiences, Rabbi Lopes Cardozo often lectures to non-Jewish groups, including Christian leaders, about comparative religion and the fundamentals of Judaism.

"Rabbi Nathan Lopes Cardozo has emerged as one of the most thoughtful voices in contemporary Orthodoxy. He is a man of deep faith and wide intellectual horizons, unafraid to confront the challenges of the age with the quiet confidence of one who is attuned to the music of eternity" - Rabbi Professor Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of Britain and the Commonwealth.
