• Tel Aviv Event Planning and Marketing Fellowship Winter 2024

    Experience Israel like a local! Expand your time on Birthright through a 4-week Onward fellowship, giving you the opportunity to live in Tel-Aviv, immerse yourself in Israeli culture, and gain professional business, marketing, and event planning skills. Our fellowship includes trips throughout Israel, apartment style accommodations, immersive group activities and lots of free time to truly experience Israel in your own way.

    In this fellowship, you will receive professional enrichment in event planning, production, operations, photography, marketing, sales, social media, business development, graphic design, web development, video editing and more. By the completion of your program, using the skills you have developed during your enrichment program, you and your peers will plan and execute an event in central Tel Aviv!
