The Fellowship examines the special relationship between the American Jewish community and the State of Israel.

During the eight-part program, participants will learn how to:

  • Explore Israel as a Jewish and democratic state
  • Examine the conflict and differing narratives in the State of Israel
  • Gain advocacy experience, social media skills, and become a savvy consumer of information
  • Evaluate the many ways they can engage with Israel on college campuses and beyond
Participants will benefit from a safe space to ask tough questions, role play complex scenarios they may face on campus, and learn Israel advocacy concepts and resources from dynamic speakers.

Become one of the nearly 100 college-bound high school students who have completed this prestigious fellowship.
