The Margo & Yoram Cohen Family Israel Engagement Fellowship

Israel Engagement Fellowship Banner

The Margo and Yoram Cohen Family Israel Engagement Fellowship, available to students grades 10 through 12, is a free eight-part program that explores the trends on college campus and how Israel fits into broader conversations.

Alongside friends, participants in the Israel Engagement Fellowship will explore the centrality of Israel in Jewish history, discover the many facets of Israel, examine the Israeli-Arab conflict, learn from differing narratives, and develop a uniquely personal Israel story.

Fellows will graduate with the knowledge, experience and confidence to engage with and advocate for Israel in their own unique and meaningful way.
