The Bronfman Fellowship is a vibrant network of 1,100+ pluralistic young Jews from Israel and North America. The program begins with a five-week, all-expenses-paid trip to Israel. Fellows explore deep existential questions and Jewish ideas while building friendships with peers who challenge and inspire them. If you are intellectually adventurous, Jewish, and currently in 11th grade, apply to The Bronfman Fellowship!
Every year, twenty-six outstanding North American teenagers are selected as Bronfman Fellows. The highlight of the Fellowship is a five week, all-expenses-paid Summer Fellowship in Israel. Fellows engage in thought-provoking study and conversation and make lifelong friends. Our high-caliber educators focus on teaching a broad range of traditional and contemporary Jewish texts at a university level. Fellows encounter the land and people of Israel, study major issues in contemporary Jewish life, meet with some of today's most influential figures, and learn about themselves and each other. The Fellowship year continues with seminars in December and March in New York. Fellows continue their association with the Fellowship through our extraordinarily active, 1100+ alumni community.
