Naomi Chazan Fellowship - New Israel Fund Australia

Naomi Chazan Fellowship

Deepen your understanding of Israel-Palestine, see the challenges first hand and meet the civil society organisations fighting for equality and justice.

Join a trip to Israel with a global group of emerging Jewish leaders from the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada who are committed to democracy and inclusion. Come back to Australia and be part of a growing community of changemakers dedicated to social justice, human rights and equality. Along the way learn the skills necessary for creating impactful change, such as storytelling, building power, digital advocacy and community organising.

We are grateful to the generous donors who allow us to run the Naomi Chazan Fellowship. Acknowledging the commitment of Kerryn Baker z"l to equality and justice in Israel and the enrichment of the next generation of community leadership, we are honoured to have two of our Naomi Chazan Fellows subsidised through Kerryn's legacy.

Applications are closed for 2023-24.

A Growing Community

“I applied for the Naomi Chazan Fellowship as I wanted to learn more about the complex issues that Israeli society is currently facing. The Fellowship allowed me to not only see and experience some of these issues first hand, it also opened my eyes to the amazing work that programs and charities who are supported by NIF are doing in Israeli society.” – Amy Dascal (2017-18 cohort)
