The Experience of a LIFETIME

Miami Diller Teen Fellows: Apply TODAY!

"During my time in Israel with Diller, I met many people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds that I was able to form life-long friendships with, and was able to have complex and personal conversations about the different aspects of Judaism, Israel, and everything it entails."

--Joshua Balila, Diller Cohort 4

The Diller Teen Fellows program is an immersive leadership program inviting a select group of Jewish 10th and 11th graders from 6 continents and 32 city-centers to step up, lead their communities, and repair the world. Each year, over 600 teens – from North America, South Africa, Australia, South America, Europe and Israel spend 12 months engrossed in the Diller fellowship. Our training features a commitment to hands-on Tikkun Olam (community service), building a connection to the Jewish people and Israel, and deepening Jewish identity.

The depth of the program, global engagement, and a focus on experiential learning, create an enduring impact on participants and their families, creating leaders with the power to enact change. The teens graduate from the program to join the ranks of thousands of alumni, studying at top universities and leaving their mark on the world, leveraging the network of young leaders around the world that they establish through the program.

Diller is more just another Israel trip.

Through International Seminars, local workshops, Shabbatonim, and local programming throughout the fellowship year, teens really get to delve deeply into all the local and global Jewish community has to offer. Teens will actually work hand-in-hand with their Israeli peers all the while forming life-long friendships with other Diller teens from all over the world, establishing a network of diverse Jewish leaders committed to making the world a better place. These teens are part of something greater, and they feel it all through the program.

"Diller really helped me grow as an individual and a Jew. I was consistently pushed out of my comfort zone in workshops, shabbatonim, JCM (Jewish Community Mifgash), and ISS (Israel Summer Seminar). Throughout the year we focused on Diller's core values and really expanded my way of thinking and approaching new situations. In Israel, I was immersed in different cultures, ideas, and communities. I was able to make the most out of my experiences by tapping into the open mindedness and respect I learned through Diller."

--Rachel Thomas, Diller Cohort 5 Junior Counselor

South Florida's Adam J. Tiktin, President and Broker of Tiktin Real Estate Investment Services’ (TREIS), was honored to be among the nation’s top community leaders invited to attend the American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (AABGU) Zin Fellows Leadership Program, an in-depth immersion into the issues involved in the continuing development of the Negev, Israel’s southern desert region. Each cohort consists of 15 to 20 outstanding community leaders from across the United States who are interested in a new and unique opportunity to be engaged in the future of Israel through their connection to the Negev region.

The week-long seminar in Israel featured faculty members from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), as well as guest speakers from a range of disciplines. By exploring the Negev’s history, topography, geography, demography and sustainability, attendees came to understand and appreciate the unique role the Negev plays in the unfolding development of the State of Israel. Through study and group engagement, the program imparted insights into the challenges that lie ahead for the Negev and the knowledge for how to play a part in surmounting them.

The result of the seminar was the formation of a connected group of discerning leaders who returned to their communities equipped with the tools and excitement to share about Israel and the Negev and inspire continued engagement with Ben-Gurion University. The event also provided an exceptional opportunity for Tiktin to network with leaders across 12 industries and form fruitful relationships.

Over the course of his 20-year career, Tiktin has exclusively listed and sold over $850 million in more than 350 transactions. Adam was accepted into the Forbes Real Estate Council, an invitation-only community for executives in the real estate industry. He also sits on the FIU Hollo School of Real Estate Bain Real Estate Council and serves on the ICSC State of Florida Committee. Adam is a strong supporter of the Jewish community and regularly contributes to numerous industry and nonprofit organizations, including the Jewish Federation and AIPAC, among others.
