Naomi Chazan Fellowship

The Naomi Chazan Fellowship is a year-long program that begins with a subsidized, eight-day study tour in Israel. Two dozen changemakers in their 20s and 30s from Canada, the UK, Australia, and the US join an immersive experience to explore social issues in Israel and the Occupied Territories. Fellows return home and work to engage our communities on these issues, take part in leadership seminars, and become part of a global network of young Jewish progressives.

The 2023 Fellowship is currently underway and applications are now open for 2024! Learn more here.


The Elissa Froman Social Change Fellowship, run by the New Israel Fund in the US, was created to honour the memory of Elissa Froman, z”l, a remarkable young woman whose life was rooted in the Jewish community and who held an abiding commitment to progressive causes at home and in Israel.

Created by the Eugene and Janet Lerner Family Foundation with Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), the seminary of the Reform Movement, and the New Israel Fund (NIF), the leading supporter of progressive causes in Israel, the fellowship is a unique opportunity for future rabbis and cantors to engage in deep learning about social issues in Israel – the kind of learning Elissa would have relished.
