Hillel has appointed a cadre of 34 Israel Fellows to campuses around North America. The Israel Fellows are university graduates and veterans of the Israel Defense Force who come from a wide range of backgrounds and include new immigrants from the former Soviet Union, Ethiopia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The Israel Fellows program is a collaboration of Hillel and the Jewish Agency for Israel that places outstanding young Israelis on key North American campuses to serve as peer ambassadors to the campus community.

Hillel and the Jewish Agency doubled the number of Fellows on North American campuses for the 2010-2011 school year.
