"After joining Diller, I was exposed to 19 other Jewish teens from all different backgrounds... We all bring something different to the table and it fascinates me! Diller has given me, and continues to give me, the knowledge that goes far beyond the basics and I couldn’t be more grateful!" --Liel Hagen, Cohort 1 Fellow
Diller Teen Fellows is a prestigious yearlong fellowship for high school students interested in exploring topics in leadership, Jewish identity, social justice, and Israel. The Diller program operates in 32 communities in North America, South Africa, Australia, South America, Europe, and Israel with the goal of developing future generations of active, effective leaders with strong Jewish identities, commitment to the Jewish people, respect for pluralism, and love of Israel. Chicago launched its first cohort in 2013 in partnership with JUF's Partnership Together region in Israel: Kiryat Gat, Lachish, and Shafir.
