Pardes Global Leadership Fellowship

For Emerging Leaders Outside North America and Israel

Pardes Global Leadership Fellows are emerging Jewish leaders ages 20-36 from communities outside of Israel and North America who are passionate about gaining knowledge and skills to help create vibrant and meaningful Jewish life back home. Relevant candidates will have demonstrated a commitment to enriching their home communities through Jewish learning and community building, and will receive additional leadership training during their time at Pardes.

Fellows work closely with staff to create partnerships that will help strengthen ties between Pardes and global Jewish communities. Past fellows have been chosen as Pardes representatives at various international retreats and events sponsored by Moishe House, Limmud, Yesod, Junction, Masa Israel Journey and more.

All Global Leadership Fellows are full-time participants of the Pardes Year/Semester program, with flexibility to attend for the full year or a single semester.

Admissions are rolling, with financial aid priority given to earlier applicants.

All Global Leadership Fellows will receive:

  • A living expenses grant ranging from $200-$600/month (exact amount determined by financial need)
  • Highly subsidized Year Program tuition: $3,000 discount for those not eligible for Masa Israel Journey funding / $2,000 discount for those eligible for Masa funding
