Israel Trip Itinerary – Naomi Chazan Fellowship - New Israel Fund Australia

Israel Trip Itinerary – Naomi Chazan Fellowship

Israel Study Tour

The Fellowship’s trip to Israel is the anchor of the program. Fellows will meet with grassroots activists, civil rights lawyers, academics, journalists and artists who are leading the social change movement in Israel-Palestine today. 

Hearing from a full range of changemakers – religious and secular, left and right, Jewish and Palestinian, Ashkenazi and Mizrahi – Fellows will develop a holistic understanding of Israel-Palestine and an understanding of where it can be improved.

Fellows will learn about the challenges to Israel’s identity as a Jewish and democratic state, the impacts of the occupation, investigate the issues and politics of religion, immigration, land use, women’s role in society, the environment, and other pressing civil and human rights challenges.

By meeting with changemakers in civil society and experiencing the reality of the daily lives of Israelis and Palestinians, fellows will have the experience they need to lead new conversations in the Australian Jewish community.

“The trip was so interesting and extremely informative. The fast pace of the days and squeezing so much into them was a great way to show us just how many people are trying to make a difference for people in need. I felt very inspired by many of the organisations with whom we met.” - Liat Kedem 

“The Naomi Chazan Fellowship allowed me to experience Israel Palestine in an authentic and engaging way, with exposure to a range of activists, thinkers and organisations doing amazing work on the ground” - Tahj Rosmarin

“The Naomi Chazan Fellowship has given me a truly unique opportunity to engage with and deepen my understanding of the on-the-ground-realities of the ongoing occupation of Palestinian people and social inequality in Israel-Palestine.” Sione Pemberton
