Recently, I was granted an Israel advocacy scholarship called the Braman Fellowship. As a Jew, advocating for Israel is an extremely important part of my day-to-day life. Promoting Israel’s peace and prosperity is something that I have always emphasized in everything that I do. Students in 11th and 12th grade from around the world are offered
informational classes about Israel and are given funds for trips, such as AIPAC and Birthright. Synagogues across the United States reach out to students, and 3-5 juniors and seniors from each synagogue are awarded the scholarship. Students, in turn, agree to take a class about Israel and to advocate for Israel, on and off the college campus. Once a
month, I go to my local synagogue, where the classes are held and learn about statistics and facts about Israel. At the end of March, I will travel to Washington D.C. to attend the AIPAC Policy Conference with all of my fellows. I feel extremely fortunate for this opportunity and look forward to passing on my knowledge about Israel.
