Youth Fellowship Program To Israel
The Bronfman Youth Fellowships in Israel announced recently that applications are now being accepted for its twentieth summer.
The Fellowships, founded by Edgar M. Bronfman, President of the Samuel Bronfman Foundation, take a group of 26 outstanding high school students to Israel for five weeks of intensive study and travel.
The program offers an opportunity for students entering twelfth grade to participate in an intensive five-week program, designed to develop future community leaders committed to Jewish unity.
Traveling throughout Israel, the Fellows participate in seminars and dialogues with diverse rabbinic faculty, and spend a week with a group of Israeli peers.
In explaining the purpose of the Fellowships, Edgar Bronfman said, “Our hope is to open lines of communication among a group of outstanding young people on the major issues confronting the Jewish people in all its diversity. In that process, we believe, they will discover that there is a common Jewish agenda that transcends the differences among them.”
Applications for the 2006 Fellowship are available online at www. bronfman. org, and are open to high school students in the United States and Canada who will be in the twelfth grade in the fall of 2006.
