New Gen Activism Fellowship 18/19
The New Gen Activism Fellowship is an exciting opportunity for young British Jews who are passionate about social justice, human rights, equality and pluralism and who care deeply about the State of Israel, to channel their deep commitment to Israel’s future and their passion for social justice into concrete activism, connecting the UK to grassroots groups in Israel.

New Gen (short for “New Generation”) is New Israel Fund’s international community of young adults and social activists in their twenties and thirties who are committed to this vision, and New Gen members in the UK are offered a variety of ways to learn, connect and act through our menu of educational, social and philanthropic activities.

The New Gen Activism Fellowship will offer exceptional young leaders a unique immersion into issues in Israeli society, opportunities to forge connections with Israeli activists leading positive change, and the skills and platforms to lead initiatives to support and advance this work. See below for more details.
