Our 2020 Fellows recently completed the summer portion of their Bronfman Fellowship year, and they’re still buzzing with excitement despite the postponement of their Israel trip. They formed deep friendships, took part in intense intellectual debates, talked late into the night with their “roommates,” sang together, bonded over movie nights and virtual sleepovers, engaged with challenging speakers and educators, and delved deeply into a rich tapestry of Jewish ideas and perspectives. In many ways, it was a typical (as in, “typically extraordinary”) Fellowship summer!
Fellows will continue their Fellowship-year experience after the summer.
Our Programming and Education Director, Jake Marmer, has written about how we’re creating an immersive educational community online.
The health and safety of our Fellows and staff has always been our top priority. It is our hope that the 2021 Fellowship Year will proceed normally and that the Fellows will be able to meet in person and travel to Israel. If international travel is not possible, please know that we are committed to running a stellar experience in 2021 – whether that involves a domestic travel alternative or virtual programming.
