The Szarvas Fellowships program is accepting applications for summer 2015. The fellowships offer students completing 10th and 11th grades an opportunity to attend the largest international Jewish camp in Szarvas, Hungary with a pluralistic group of teens from across the United States and Canada. This program will explore issues of Jewish identity, pluralism, Jewish peoplehood and more. Camp Szarvas has campers from 20-25 countries around the world.
The Fellowships provides the participants with the unique opportunity to gain a first-hand understanding of their own roots as well as the backgrounds and experiences of their peers from other countries. In preparation for the trip, Fellows research their own family histories, turning the experience into a personal journey of discovery. This journey is highlighted with the daily peulot (informal educational programs) which encourage the fellows to engage in meaningful discussions with their peers. These peulot touch upon some key topics that relate to North American Jewry while keeping in mind the international context of Camp Szarvas.
The Szarvas Fellows attend one of the four 2 week summer sessions at Camp Szarvas. Applications are due by February 11, 2015.
