This year, National Hillel Basketball Tournament is thrilled to be partnering with Hasbara Fellowships. Hasbara allows students who are leaders in their Jewish college communities to travel to Israel to learn how they can become more effective leaders. Hasbara Fellowships provide resources that these student leaders need to bring a sense of pro-Zionism to their college campus. After the summer program has ended, participants continue to work with Hasbara staff who aid them in implementing changes in their college campus. In addition to being given resources, fellows receive education and training on how to become an accomplished Jewish and Israel activist while also educating others who may not know as much but want to learn more.
National Hillel Basketball Tournament is dedicated to strengthening the Jewish community on college campuses. Similarly, Hasbara Fellowships is committed to allowing students to make changes to better the Jewish community on their own college campuses. It is because of this joint mission that National Hillel Basketball Tournament is excited to be working with Hasbara Fellowships. If you are interested in learning more or signing up for the program this summer, you can visit them at https://hasbarafellowships.org/.
