Onward Israel

Onward Israel Advocacy Fellowship program aims to bring young Jews from South Africa and Australia, aged between 19-33, to Israel in order to strengthen their ability to act and advocate for Israel.

The program offers the unique opportunities of:

  • Internships in Israeli organizations that operate in the area of Israel's international standing
  • High level education on the current situation in the area and hands-on training on the most up to date and cutting edge pro-Israel strategies.  

During the 6 week program, participants are exposed to a weekly curriculum that includes 1 full day of learning about Israeli politics and current affairs, 3 days of internships in advocacy organisations and 1 day of touring. Throughout the program, participants have the opportunity to meet with politicians, military people, journalist etc

The highly subsidised  program costs $370USD (plus flights) and  gives participants the chance to gain invaluable professional experience in Israel through a public policy related internship, and high-level educational experience. 

This year, Onward Israel will be taking place from 1 Dec 2013 - 15 Jan 2014 and has 9 fortunate delegates from South Africa, all students who are involved with SAUJS.
