Community

The Bronfman Fellowship is a lifelong fellowship; our community of Fellows is continually strengthened by the diversity of paths in which our alumni engage – professionally, religiously, and geographically. In addition to the American Fellows scattered around the world, our Israeli Fellows, Amitei Bronfman, anchor our presence in Israel. Our unique approach to alumni engagement was featured by the Schusterman Foundation.

Help and be helped, give and receive, inspire and be inspired. Harness the power of this extraordinary network of 1300+ Bronfmanim across North America and Israel.

Below are the many ways you can make this your Bronfman!
