Israel Learning Fellowship 2.0
Okay, so now you know who founded Labour Zionism and when most Ethiopian Jews came to Israel, it’s time to go deeper. You ready? Earn $200 to have your narratives complicated and assumptions challenged in this deep dive examination of Israeli history, politics and culture.
The Israel Learning Fellowship 2.0 (ILF 2.0) is six weekly sessions of interactive, intellectual and discussion-based learning exclusively for students who have participated in a general ILF looking to take a deep dive into Israeli history, society and politics. The goal of ILF 2.0 is not to know more facts about Israel, but to examine complicated issues around questions of self-determination, religious freedom, ethnic conflict and identity formation. Israeli society, like any democracy, is messy and complicated. ILF 2.0 is about complicating narratives and looking at the hot button issues at the centre of political disagreement in Israel today.
Accepted fellowship participants will meet once a week at the same time over Zoom based on availability. All participants must attend all six sessions in order to receive the completion stipend. The application deadline is January 29.
