our education

Alongside their professional internships, IGF Fellows participate in a comprehensive and nuanced education program that examines core issues in Israeli society. They are challenged to think critically about topics such as geopolitics, diplomacy, security, economics, and religion and state. The IGF curriculum includes lectures and talks from a diverse roster of Israeli policymakers, journalists, activists and leading public figures. Fellows also participate in intensive Hebrew studies, professional development workshops and on-the-ground excursions throughout Israel.

igf prides itself with a prestigious, highly diverse roster of speakers. Meet some of our speakers throughout the years:
