Greater MetroWest Israel Engagement Fellowship

The Greater MetroWest Israel Engagement Fellowship, available to students in grades 11 and 12, is a five-part program that explores the centrality of Israel in Jewish history and the diversity of Israel today. The program includes a deep dive into the history and contemporary issues of the Arab-Israeli conflict, and prepares participants for conversations about Israel, especially as they enter the challenges on college campuses. During the program, Fellows gain the knowledge, experience, confidence and leadership to engage with Israel in their own unique and meaningful way.
