Oranim Samis-TRY fellows will be required to:

  • Meet several times throughout the semester with Israeli and North American leaders and educators.
  • Write 2-4 blogs throughout the semester, reflecting on their experiences. This will be done with the supervision of a professional writer.
  • Upon returning to their home communities, the fellows will be asked to inspire others to connect with Israel in a meaningful way by sharing with them the impact TRY had on their lives. This should be done through media postings, a sermon in the their home synagogue, running a program in USY or another youth group, hosting an event with their Jewish/Israel club at school, and/or serving as alumni speakers at TRY open houses in the community.
