About the Sponsor:

The Greater New York Impact Fellowship was created by an anonymous donor to enable Jewish high school students from the New York area to explore and discover their connection to the land, people, history and culture of Israel. The Greater New York Impact Fellowship was also made possible by a grant from The JNF Boruchin Israel Education and Advocacy Center.
