Campus Fellows





The JNF Campus Fellowship trains, mentors, and supports pro-Israel student leaders from across the U.S. to facilitate Jewish National Fund-USA programs in their campus communities. Fellows play a critical role in recruiting friends to participate in JNF on Campus programs, JNF-USA trips to Israel such as Alternative Break, recruit for JNF-USA College Summit, and help fundraise for Tu BiShvat, the new year for trees. 

Campus Fellows have the important role of building support for Israel in campus spaces guided by the vision of JNF-USA - to ensure a strong, secure, and prosperous future for the land and people of Israel. Every project, initiative, and campaign they take on is integral to JNF-USA's overall vision of building and connecting to our land.
