The Diller Teen Fellows Program presents a wonderful model for engaging the diaspora by connecting teens here to those in Israel and allowing them to engage in leadership opportunities. The program chooses “to have the teens and staff engage in Jewish Peoplehood in practice; to experience it, react to it, reflect on it and ultimately learn from it.” This article speaks volumes for the mission of The Diller Teen Fellows Program and expresses the potential they see in the younger generation and in the connections we can build with our Israeli counterparts. Building peoplehood starts with our children and our teens and I believe that working with them is one of the most rewarding things we can do. Enabling them with the right tools to build a better world and more unified people is of the utmost importance and is valuable work. We applaud The Diller Teen Fellows Program and look forward to working with the Diller Teen Fellows in the future!
