Israel Learning


The Israel Learning Fellowship (ILF) is an eight-week learning opportunity for students to learn about different aspects of Israel. Sessions will be led by UF Hillel's Israel Fellow, Nofar Abutbul, along with guest speakers. The fellowship will explore the history and culture of Israel, the establishment of the state of Israel, geography, conflicts throughout the years, and Israel's contributions to the world. 


Students in the fellowship will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of meaningful past and current events, develop a personal connection to Israel, and learn how to have productive conversations with those who have different perspectives about Israel. This is a unique opportunity to learn about many facets of Israel!  Fellows can earn a stipend at the end of the program.

The Israel Learning Fellowship will be held in person at UF Hillel with masks and physical distancing required. We will meet weekly, on Wednesdays from 3:00-4:15 pm or 4:45-6:00 pm (dependent on registration), starting Sep. 29 and ending on Nov. 24. The fellowship will NOT meet on Nov. 10.
