Description We're thrilled to announce that applications are now open for the 28th cohort of the Bronfman Youth Fellowships. The application can be found online at www.bronfman.org and this year's deadline is January 6, 2014. For the 28th year, this program, in which I participated when I was in high school, will select an outstanding group of 26 young people for a Fellowship year experience, starting with an all-expenses paid, 5-week Fellowship to Israel during the summer between junior and senior year. The program is life-changing. Please share this information with students (or individuals who work with high school students) who you believe are talented and ready for an experience that will enable them to learn about themselves, deepen their Jewish identity, and meet some of the most interesting figures in Israel and Jewish life today (not to mention create life-long bonds with peers). The discussions and learning that take place during the BYFI summer are vigorous and incredibly high-level. Fellows' experience is broadened by the different perspectives they hear from one another on the trip and long after as life-long members of an active alumni community. I am hopeful that, with your encouragement, other members of your community will take advantage of this unique opportunity. Students will go through a competitive application process. For more information visit www.bronfman.org (the application is online too). Applications are due by January 6, 2014. BYFI is a pluralistic program for Jews of all backgrounds; prior Jewish education is not required. All meals are kosher and group activities on the Sabbath are in keeping with the sanctity of the day. Students are chosen not on the basis of financial need but on merit alone. Application deadline: January 6, 2014 Summer dates: July 1st - August 7th, 2014 Please feel free to be in contact with me directly if you have questions. Of course, you can also contact the BYFI office at info@byfi.org or call 518-475-7212 and ask for Ava.
