A Program Unlike Any Other!
The Tiferet Israel Fellowship is a life-changing three-year program unique to Milken Community High School and designed to create ambassadors for the State of Israel as well as future leaders in the American Jewish community. Tiferet offers our Fellows the opportunity of a lifetime – to make Israel their campus for an entire semester followed by a two-year educational experience in leadership development during Grades 11 and 12.
The Jews of the Second Aliyah to the land of Israel sang, "We have come to this land to build and be built," seeing their own work in building the land of Israel as a way of transforming themselves.
In that spirit, over the course of a three year fellowship, Tiferet Israel Fellows explore how living and learning in Israel helps them build their own identities, and in turn become leaders in the continued building of the State of Israel.
Israel Fellowship fosters an unprecedented blend of academic rigor,
emotional warmth, and traditional and experiential practices to fuse a
love of Israel, appreciation for the Hebrew language and deep
understanding of Israel's rich history. The program fosters the
development of its Fellows into individuals who are passionate about
Israel and who have the skills needed to lead Jewish students on college
campuses as ambassadors for Israel. During the program, Fellows sharpen
social skills, enhance independence, and practice Tikkun Olam (Social
Action). This program affords Fellows the opportunity to develop a sense
of Jewish identity and pride and to become Zionists in a global world.
