Ongoing Events 2018-19

Fellows will plan and run at least four events in the community, in partnership with the NIF Program Manager. Examples of past projects include: working on our ‘The Other Hagaddah’ supplement, film screenings, creating content for and hosting topical shabbat dinners, mini-courses for student leaders, photo exhibits, presentations at youth movement camps/seminars, op-eds for the Jewish News, and video link ups with NIF grantees in Israel.

Fellows will also be part of a year long international Giving Circle with all the participants of the study tour. Fellows will be asked to make a nominal monthly donation. As a group they will discuss and nominate which organisations to support. During these online conversations there will also be opportunities to hear from the international NIF leadership and receive Israel updates.
