Welcoming the 2015 Masa-Hillel Fellows

Welcoming the 2015 Masa-Hillel Fellows

January 28, 2015

We are so excited to welcome our second cohort of Masa-Hillel Fellows. The fellowship is a six-month professional development seminar designed to prepare current Masa Israel participants for Hillel work.
Through Hillel’s partnership with Masa Israel Journey, Hillel provides a Fellowship experience for current Masa participants who were at the Masa Israel Leadership Summit in December. The goal of the Masa-Hillel Fellowship is to build a talent pipeline and populate Hillel’s professional cohort with talented individuals and budding leaders who are actively exploring Israel and reinforcing their Jewish and Israel connections. Learn more about the Fellowship and last year's cohort here.

Seven of last year's Fellows now work for Hillels across the country. We couldn't be more proud of the professional success of our alumni, and wish the best of luck to this year's cohort!

The Holidays in Israel

<div class="masa-blog-title">The Holidays in Israel</div>

By Chloe Newman, Masa Israel Teaching Fellow in Ashdod

 

While this holiday season didn’t resemble the traditions of my youth, it was still very special for me. With my new friends and communities here in Israel, I took part in multi-cultural celebrations across the country. The saying here goes that Israelis will take any excuse to celebrate, eat, drink, and be merry with the ones they love...and especially without the bombardment of superficial, commercial holiday stresses, why not?
