Fellows are able to identify and define their strengths, challenges, and personal leadership goals. Diller provides the tools, feedback, and mentoring needed to experiment, collaborate, and learn from experiences.
Fellows develop a meaningful personal connection with both the land and the people of Israel. They establish an evolving and sustained relationship with Israel driven by a deep sense of responsibility for its future.
Fellows have the opportunity to examine and reflect on their Jewish Identity in order to better understand the history, traditions, and values that motivate them to act in the world.
Fellows embrace the unique structure of a pluralistic environment by actively discovering diverse global perspectives through interactions with Jewish peers from all over the community and around the globe.
Fellows participate in community service projects in Miami throughout the fellowship year and have the opportunity to apply for grant funding to support Impact projects close to their hearts.
Fellows will gain a meaningful sense of belonging to the Jewish people. Fellows will demonstrate responsibility for other Jews and the future of the Jewish people, both locally and globally.
