The Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture is now accepting applications for the NAHUM GOLDMANN FELLOWSHIP in ISRAEL, at the Ohalo Manor on the Kineret on June 11-17, 2013.
The NAHUM GOLDMANN FELLOWSHIP, sponsored by the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, is aimed at providing young men and women around the world with an intensive experience in Jewish learning, living and leadership. Twenty-four successful International Nahum Goldmann Fellowships have been held since 1987 in Western and Eastern Europe including Russia, South America, Southeast Asia, Australia, South Africa and Israel, and five mini Nahum Goldmann Fellowships have been organized in Iran, Australia, South Africa, North America and Israel.
Following each of the past seminars, fellows returned to their communities and took steps to assume leadership positions in their communities.
Young men and women between the ages of approximately 25-40 who have demonstrated motivation and interest in Jewish learning and living, capacity for individual growth, professional and communal achievements, and leadership potential are eligible to apply.
