Opportunities for Teens

Study in Israel! Each summer, a group of outstanding Jewish teenagers in the U.S. and Canada, coming from a wide variety of backgrounds and entering the twelfth grade, will be recipients of the Bronfman Youth Fellowships. They will spend five fulfilling weeks of study, dialogue and travel in Israel.
