Who is the Fellowship For? - New Israel Fund Australia (New)

Who is the Fellowship For?

Are you interested in better understanding the complexity of what's happening in Israel?

Looking for a way to connect with others who share your social justice values and support democracy in Israel?

Want to be part of expanding the conversation around Israel in the Australian Jewish community?

The Naomi Chazan Fellowship gives you the opportunity to be part of an expanding network of the next generation of progressive leaders around the world, anchored by their joint experiences on an intensive 9 day trip to Israel with emerging leaders from the UK, the US and Canada.

Together you’ll meet Israeli and Palestinian activists and changemakers making a difference on the ground across a variety of issues areas: religious freedom, the rights of refugees and people seeking asylum, ending the occupation of the Palestinian territories, fighting gender segregation, creating shared society and building coexistence, and combating racism and discrimination.

After your trip to Israel, you’ll become part of the Fellowship’s alumni community which is central to growing the NIF Australia community.

Each year, a round table day, with Fellowship alumni at its core, will hear from some of the most influential Israeli and Australian speakers to stay engaged in all the most important social and political events happening around the world. In addition, Fellowship alumni will come together a few times a year to build your networks and keep exploring the issues in Australia and Israel most important to you.

NIF Australia will also be making some funding available for communal and professional development to give you the chance to expand your horizons. 

If you see a future where Israel and the Diaspora have an honest and open relationship, if you want to go on a unique trip to Israel which is just the beginning of an ongoing relationship which deepens your understanding of Israeli society, and if you want to be part of making long-lasting, positive change in both Israel and the Australian Jewish community, then the Naomi Chazan Fellowship is for you!
