Our 2018-19 Naomi Chazan fellows recently returned from their study tour. Read some of their reflections:

 

“I was surprised by how many obstacles students [in the South Hebron Hills, in the West Bank] face just to physically get to school, as well as to go on to university. It’s inspiring that after [going through all of that and graduating], they then have the desire and passion to go back to their communities and help people” – Jacob Shusterov

 

“I feel really grateful to the New Israel Fund for giving me the opportunity…to meet all of these inspiring people doing so much for human rights in Israel. I was exposed to many activities, organizations, and ideas about the Israeli reality that weren’t accessible to me through the media, Facebook, or people I meet in my everyday life” – Racheli Shenhav-Goldberg

 

“It was inspiring to hear activists younger than us speak confidentially about how they are advocating for socioeconomic justice in their community. Usumain, a Sudanese asylum seeker who fled to Israel at age 14, just finished his Bachelor’s degree. Beyond that, he’s a founding member of the African Students Organization, which supports refugees in accessing higher education” – Enbal Singer
