Israel Engagement Fellowship 4th and 5th Cohorts
The JCRC of Greater Washington and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington are so proud of the 22 graduates of our Israel Engagement Fellowship's 4th and 5th cohorts. We celebrated their achievements with nearly 100 people in attendance at a ceremony Wednesday night at the Embassy of Israel in Washington, D.C.. Ilan Sztulman, Minister for Public Diplomacy at the Embassy joined us and discussed the importance of American teens' engagement with Israel.
We were also joined by JCRC interns and college students, Melissa Dworkin and Miriam Duffy who gave the high school students a real life picture of what to expect on campus with regards to Israel and some great tips for talking to other students about Israel. Several student representatives participated in the ceremony.
Thank you to Margo and Yoram Cohen for their vision and generosity making the IEF possible. And thank you to the Federation's Pnina Agenyahu and Samantha Vinokor for their hard work and dedication in teaching IEF this spring with the Israel Action Center's Noa Meir and Alexis Schwartz. Thanks to Na'ama Gold, shlicha at the JCC of Northern Virginia for her contributions to teaching IEF 4 last fall. We look forward to IEF cohorts 6, 7, and beyond next year!
