Student Receives Prestigious Bronfman Fellowship

Rachel Tsuna was informed earlier this week that she is one of only twenty-six 11th graders from across North America who were selected to participate in this summer's Bronfman Youth Fellowship program.  The program features an all-expense paid five-week trip to Israel for these talented and diverse young men and women where they will explore their Jewish identity and strengthen their ties to the Jewish State.

In addition, each fellow in the program is charged with the responsibility of developing a Ma'aseh Project, a social-action endeavor which they must implement over the course of their senior year with guidance from mentors provided by the Bronfman program.   As a Bronfman Fellow, Racheli will also gain access to a network of highly successful and closely knit Bronfman alumni who have assumed leadership positions throughout the Jewish community.

We have no doubt that the experience will prove invaluable and we can't wait to hear about it in August when she returns!
