ConnecTech Fellowship Application- Due Feb 28
About
The purpose of this fellowship is to encourage friendships and connection between Jewish students at MIT and the Technion.

By providing opportunities for mifgash (meeting), and limmud (learning) ConnecTech fosters a sense for participants at both universities that they are part of a global Jewish people. The fellowship achieves this through exploring and understanding the Jewish life of peers in Israel and the Diaspora, and examining Jewish identity and community.
