Fellowship Timeline – Naomi Chazan Fellowship - New Israel Fund Australia

Fellowship Timeline – Naomi Chazan Fellowship

The core of the Naomi Chazan Fellowship includes an introductory seminar, the 9 day study tour in Israel, our ongoing New Gen events as well as the annual round table. We ask you to make sure you can attend all dates in your Fellowship year.

Due to the coronavirus our planned dates have changed. As we have more clarity over the situation we are hoping to create alternate online events and are hoping to relaunch the face-to-face part of the Fellowship towards Q4 of 2020. 

Please note all dates are still to be finalised.

New Gen Round Table

Join this year’s fellows, as well as our growing alumni and other like minded members of the Australian Jewish community for a day of workshops, brainstorming, discussions and other sessions with inspiring Israeli and Australian leaders.

November 2020 

Introductory Seminar

This seminar is important to get all the new fellows together to begin creating the bonds that will propel the program forward. We’ll start our deep dive into Israeli society and the Australian Jewish community, identify the role we can play as changemakers, and go through all the important details about the trip to Israel.

Late December 2020/early January 2021 

Study Tour in Israel

Fellows will be required in Israel on these dates. The trip will include components in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, the occupied Palestinian territories, and northern Israel. On the tour, minimal free time will be programmed, but fellows’ tickets may be extended, if they wish (at the individual’s cost). Click through to see last year’s program.

Once every three months

New Gen Events

Every few months, our Fellows will get together for bespoke events to track the latest social and political happenings in Australia and Israel.

Throughout your Fellowship year, as well as as an alumni of the program, you’ll have the chance to join Fellows from around the world to make a significant and tangible impact on these issues in Israel by investing in social change organisations on the ground.
