Are you a teen looking for a fun opportunity to connect to and engage with Israel?

Get ready for zIsrael Fellowship – An Israel Teen Engagement Experience. During the program, open to incoming 9th- to 12th-graders, you’ll explore your Jewish identity through monthly education sessions and social/volunteer activities, have the chance to create personal connections with other local Jewish teens and participate in local retreats*. Additionally, a weekend Shabbaton will take place in the spring at a hotel when our Israeli friends from our Federation’s Partnership Region, TZAHAR (Tzfat, Hatzor HaGlilit and Rosh Pina), spend a week in our community. At the end of zIsrael Fellowship, you will have the knowledge, experience, and confidence to be a leader and to advocate for Israel in your own unique and meaningful way.
