Every year, twenty-six outstanding North American teenagers are selected as Bronfman Fellows. The highlight of the Fellowship is a free five-week summer in Israel, where Fellows engage in thought-provoking study and conversation and make lifelong friends. Fellows encounter the land and people of Israel, study major issues in contemporary Jewish life, and meet with some of today’s most influential figures. With the guidance of a diverse faculty of Rabbis and educators, the pluralistic group of Fellows have the opportunity to explore a wide range of Jewish texts, from classic religious documents to contemporary Israeli and American voices, using them to spark conversations, engage with stimulating existential questions, and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and one another.
The Fellowship year continues with monthly virtual experiences and a Spring seminar in the United States, usually in the Northeast. Fellows continue their association with the Fellowship through an extraordinarily active, 1,200+ alumni community.
