About the Israel Leadership Fellowship:

Equip your teen with the skills to engage in tough conversations about Israel in college! The Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of San Antonio invites Jewish High School juniors and seniors to become a 2023 Israel Leadership Fellow. In five interactive sessions, teens will discuss honest answers to tough questions about Israel and antisemitism, including, "What is BDS? Why does Israel exist? What are the things about Israel I am proud of? Is anti-Zionism the same as antisemitism?"


5 sessions (in person)
