Ethnic Diversity

 This series will explore how ethnically diverse communities in Israel navigate "being Israeli" alongside unique identities and particular historical narratives. Exploring questions of identity and inclusion in the context of six ethnic/cultural groups within Israel, we will consider how the values of diversity and uniformity animate the public sphere in Israel and in our own Hillel spaces.

Ethnic Diversity will meet on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:45 PM starting on Tuesday, October 10.



This series explores how Jews navigate and share space in the Jewish state. Using five Israeli case studies, we will explore the values and challenges that are animated when making choices about Judaism within the public sphere. Because this series focuses on questions relating specifically to Jewish practices, the content will center around Jewish-Israeli voices.

Pluralism will meet on Wednesdays from 4:30- 5:45 PM starting on Wednesday, October 11.

Fellows can earn a stipend at the end of the program.

The Israel Learning Fellowship application for Fall 2023 is now open.

Please contact Shlomi Kahana for additional information.
