Every year, 26 Jewish teens get the opportunity of a lifetime: a free fellowship-year experience, beginning with a summer in Israel and the U.S., in which they embark on deeply personal journeys and learn to see the world through a lens broader than their own. After the immersive summer, the fellowship year continues with monthly virtual meetings and a winter and spring seminar in the U.S.
Inspired by a diverse faculty of rabbis and educators, fellows explore the rich tapestry of Jewish texts and ideas, using them to spark conversations, engage with stimulating existential questions and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and one another. They also expand their worldview through intensive encounters with a parallel group of Israeli peers. After the fellowship year, fellows join our extraordinarily active, 1,400-plus member alumni community, inspiring them to change the world for the better.
If you are intellectually adventurous, Jewish and in 11th grade, apply to The Bronfman Fellowship! Deadline is Dec. 4, 2023.
