About the Fellowship
In honour of William Frankel, NIF UK has established its Social Justice Fellowship Programme that enables post-university Jewish professionals with conversational Hebrew to spend 10 months working with an Israel NGO. It is a unique opportunity for a young Jewish activist from the UK to become immersed in the movement for social change in Israel. The award of the Fellowship includes a modest stipend which covers living costs.
This programme seeks to nurture and secure future social change leaders from the UK, through an internship in Israel. “Interning full-time at an Israeli NGO is a more rewarding experience than I ever could have imagined,” says the first NIF Fellow Keren Simons. “I’ve become more aware of what it really means to be an activist, and of using one’s skills to support other people in achieving their goals. I am ecstatic to be having this incredible opportunity.” Elinor Tamir, the second fellow adds: “I have felt very proud to be a part of the NIF and a part of the collective struggle for a shared society based on equal rights and opportunities for all its citizens”.
