Fellowships to USA and Canada Jewish teenagers to attend an educational program in Israel during the summer after eleventh grade. Selected fellows will have the opportunity to encounter the people and land of Israel, examine issues in modern Jewish life, and meet with influential figures.
The highlight of the Fellowship is a five week, all-expenses-paid Summer Fellowship in Israel. Fellows engage in thought-provoking study and conversation and make lifelong friends. With the guidance of a diverse faculty of Rabbis and educators, the Fellows have the opportunity to explore a wide range of Jewish texts, from classic religious documents to contemporary Israeli and American voices, using them to spark conversations, engage with stimulating existential questions, and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and one another.
The Fellowship year continues with monthly virtual experiences and a Spring seminar in the United States, usually in the Northeast. Fellows continue their association with the Fellowship through an active, 1200+ alumni community.
The Fellowship covers round-trip transportation between New York and Israel, educational programming, and room, board and travel while in Israel. Room and board at orientation and the Spring Seminar in New York City are also included. Limited additional subsidies (based on need) are available to defray costs of travel to interviews, to New York for the summer program, and for follow-up alumni activities.
