New Israel Fund Social Justice Fellowship in Israel

 

Description

The Social Justice Fellowship, now celebrating its 20th anniversary, is a one-of-a kind 10 month experience where fellows spend 4 days a week on the front lines of social change in Israel at a premiere Israeli non-profit social change organization. In addition to working on cutting-edge social justice issues with veteran activists, fellows will also have the added benefit of close contact with experts from Shatil, NIF's capacity building center and action arm, as well as monthly enrichment programs and study tours on social and political issues. These Fellowships, which include a modest stipend, place young Jewish activists in Israeli non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for a year of in-depth contribution and learning. Additionally, Fellows engage in monthly enrichment programs and periodic site visits to further develop their understanding of Israel, Israeli activism, and their role as activists both in Israel and at home. Fellows spend the year with an organization working in one of the following areas: Safeguarding civil and human rights and strengthening democracy; building shared society; promoting Palestinian equality; advancing social and economic justice; advocating for religious freedom. Applicants must be college/university graduates by the start of the fellowship and have excellent Hebrew language skills, or very good Hebrew with excellent Arabic skills.
