BIRTHRIGHT ISRAEL FELLOWS PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The Birthright Israel Fellows program develops an elite cadre of North American experiential Jewish educators to enhance Birthright Israel experiences and the broader field of Israel education and Jewish education. Through this personal and professional development program, these educators have the tools to help young Jewish adults develop deep and meaningful connections with Israel and Israelis.
IS THIS LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU?
This professional development opportunity for current and future Birthright Israel trip staff is designed to deepen skills, knowledge, and confidence to create inspiring and meaningful educational experiences. This opportunity is for people who are passionate about Israel and are committed to professionalizing the role of leading trips to Israel. Birthright Israel Fellows are committed to staffing at least three Birthright Israel trips following the training.
THE BIRTHRIGHT ISRAEL FELLOWS EXPERIENCE
Through a four-day intensive experience, we’ll discover how to become expert Israel educators on immersive Israel experiences through interactive and dynamic workshops that not only inspire and challenge our thinking, but have direct practical applications.
EXPERIENTIAL TRAINING BENEFITS
A fully-subsidized four-day skill-building seminar
Workshops in experiential Israel education
Increased knowledge about Israel
A peer network of elite leaders and educators
It’s bringing Israel education beyond Birthright, into the workplace, into schools, into families here in America where people can talk about experiences and to make it meaningful for people that may not think that it is.
You can’t separate the skills, content, and knowledge of being a Fellow from whatever else you are as a person.
The word that jumps to my mind is possibilities, we are talking here about 100 highly dedicated, passionate, creative people that have just come together and spent four days creating this incredible ball of energy.
