About the Program
Strengthening the Relationship between Israeli Leaders and the American Jewish Community
In 2011, the Ruderman Family Foundation, in collaboration with Brandeis University, launched a program designed to strengthen the bonds of understanding and appreciation between Israeli leaders and the American Jewish community.
The Ruderman Fellows program cultivates a deeper awareness of the vibrancy of American Jewish life by engaging Israeli political leaders with U.S.-based scholars, community leaders and professionals.
In partnership with the Office of the President at Brandeis, the Ruderman Fellows meet esteemed opinion makers and experts, as well as lay leaders, to understand contemporary and future trends affecting Israel and the Jewish world.
The Fellows program is committed to enhancing the horizons and capabilities of Israeli leaders. It combines the educational mission of Brandeis University with the Ruderman Foundation’s goal of strengthening the special relationship between Israel and the American Jewish community.
