Jerusalem Fellowships - Sample Itinerary

Jerusalem Fellowships Icon

An average day of Fellowships (see sample itinerary) consists of seminars and workshops in the morning and fun activities during the afternoon. There will also be overnight trips throughout the program.

Participants will come out of the program with a deepened love for the Land of Israel and a stronger knowledge and connection to their Jewish heritage. The program will provide ample opportunity for participants to discuss their opinions in workshops and lectures dealing with topics and issues relevant to today's contemporary Jew.

Jerusalem Fellowships has no expectations from its participants pertaining to their observance or knowledge level. The only expectation is that participants come ready to have fun and participate!

Spots are limited so apply now! Once your application passes an initial review, you will be contacted for an interview and to discuss available scholarship opportunities.
