Happy February, all! I took an impromptu week off in order to take care of a grad school application, but I’m back just in time to remind you of another deadline!
The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and DC’s Birthright Israel NEXT are teaming up to provide the 2011 Alumni Leadership Mission to Israel this June. Applications are being accepted through Feb. 11!
The Mission, intended for Birthright alumni through 2010, is a chance to focus on leadership development and learn about the Federation’s activities in Israel. This isn’t as simple as a free trip for everyone; the point of this experience is to foster Jewish expression, connect with young, business-savvy Israelis, and to proactively benefit the DC community. All participants are required to create an “impact project” upon their return home. I wonder what type of ideas my young professional peers will come up with!
The cost is $750 thanks to a subsidy by J-Fed and the United Jewish Endowment Fund. The application is available through the link above. Or more for information, check out Birthright’s page here.
