Applications Are Open for the 2021 Bronfman Fellowship
Dec 4 2020 – Jan 5 2021 all-day

Applications Are Open for the 2021 Bronfman Fellowship

Every year, twenty-six outstanding North American teenagers are selected as Bronfman Fellows. The Fellowship begins with a free, transformative and intellectually adventurous summer program, which is taking place in the Berkshires in 2021, followed by monthly virtual meetings and a winter and spring seminar in the United States. Fellows embark on a transformative, deeply personal journey in which they learn to see the world through a lens broader than their own. Inspired by a diverse faculty of Rabbis and educators, Fellows explore the rich tapestry of Jewish texts and ideas, using them to spark conversations, engage with stimulating existential questions, and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and one another. They also expand their perspectives through intensive encounters with a parallel group of Israeli peers. After the Fellowship year, Fellows join our extraordinarily active, 1300+ member alumni community.
