Dina Weinstein writes in the JTA newsletter about the nine fellows from the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life traveling around the South to provide professional Jewish educational resources to small Jewish communities that don't have them. The two-year fellowship program started nine years ago to reach out to isolated Jewish communities in the American South. Without the Jewish population and knowledge base of larger urban areas, the communities often have religious schools run by all-volunteer staffs, including parents with little or no formal educational training. The fellows, who work with communities on a standard curriculum of Jewish learning, split their time among 72 congregations and 59 schools in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Each summer, The David Project invites student leaders to learn about Israel at its Campus Fellows Seminars. Held at Boston University, these five-day seminars help students to understand the Arab-Israeli conflict and to make the case for Israel on their campuses. At the conferences, students work with David Project educators and campus coordinators to develop the knowledge, context and skills they need to be successful campus activists for Israel. Whether students come to the conference well-versed in Israeli history or are Israel novices, they leave feeling more confident standing up for Israel on their campus and talking to their peers about Israel.
