Migdalim - Israel Engagement Fellowship


The goal of the Migdalim Fellowship is to connect, engage, and grow student’s relationship with Israel and each other. Migdalim is a year-long, intensive internship focused on peer to peer relationships and creating meaningful conversations around them. We seek to increase the volume of productive Israel conversations taking place on campus.


This project is run in partnership with Hillel at Hunter College, Resetting the Table and Shalom Hartman Institute and is funded by UJA-Federation of New York.
