What is Ambassadors.il Program?


JCRC and JFed Senior Community Shaliach have created an exclusive Israel Ambassador.il leadership opportunity for High School students. With anti-Israel sentiment on the rise on college campuses, it is important to prepare and empower young Jewish students to advocate for Israel. This program will provide them with the education, inspiration, and tools to be confident advocates in high school and beyond. 


The students will have opportunities to practice these skills. Students that successfully complete this program will have priority when they are in college for university level advocacy training programs in Israel through Hasbara Fellowships as well as scholarships available.
