16 fellowships available for innovators


JERUSALEM (JTA) — World Jewish organizations are sponsoring summer fellowships for innovators to tackle some of the Jewish world’s most pressing problems.

Sixteen Jewish innovators will serve in PresenTense Summer Fellowships, the organization announced Wednesday.

PresenTense will provide training, education and mentoring programs during the six-week fellowship for ideas from Jewish community engagement and education to social action or Jewish art and games.

The fellows are paired with an organization that has a specific need. Among the organizations sponsoring fellows are the Jewish Funders Network, the European wing of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, iCenter and Covenant.

Candidates must apply by Feb. 15; go to www.presentensefellowship.com/apply.html.
