Fishel Fellowship

During the two-year paid fellowship, one exceptional individual from Los Angeles between the ages of 21–35 will be selected to receive leadership training and participate in hands-on community service experiences in both Jewish and non-Jewish humanitarian settings throughout the world, including Israel and Los Angeles.

As a Fishel Fellow, you will help develop social change projects, train civic activists, organize communities, and institute community infrastructure projects—all with the greater purpose of becoming an active Jewish community leader and social entrepreneur whose ideas will spark, motivate, and create change in the community.
