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
Diller Teen Fellows Program, an international immersive leadership program, is seeking 20 extraordinary teens entering 10th or 11th grade for its next cohort beginning this Fall.

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.

NORTH MIAMI BEACH – More than 200 guests - including a judging panel of Miami art scene luminaries - attended Scheck Hillel Community School's inaugural Advanced Placement (AP) Art Exhibition on April 16, 2019. This gallery of works showcased 52 student-artists enrolled in Scheck Hillel's AP 2D Design, AP 3D Design, AP Drawing, and Portfolio Development courses. The pieces are part of a broad selection of original artwork they created throughout the academic year, following criteria specified by the College Board; these portfolios now will be submitted for assessment by that body.
Through the College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) program, Scheck Hillel offers college-level courses to high school students. Many colleges grant college credit to students who obtain high scores in these classes. Scheck Hillel currently offers 19 AP courses in a variety of subjects and, throughout the past five years, Scheck Hillel students have been awarded nearly 200 AP Scholar Awards for their achievement.
April's special art exhibition was the brainchild of Scheck Hillel’s Ben Lipson Upper School art teacher Edith Shlesinger and Stuart Rosenthal, Chair of the school’s Jordan Alexander Ressler Arts Program. It spoke directly to how Scheck Hillel empowers students to maximize achievement, foster identity and explore passions. Guest judges Karina Belilty, Judith Berk King, Fela Bibas, Sigfredo Chacon and Scheck Hillel alumna Orly Shuber '01 gave special praise to the work of several student-artists with the Judges' Choice Awards: Daniela Abbo '20, Miryam Azulay '20, Andrea Benhamron '20, Clara Bromberg '20, Hannah Cohen '20, Rachel Davit '21, Noah Givner '21, Gabrielle Kurzer '20, Orly Shapiro '21, Danielle Waijman '19, Danit Weitzman '20 and Mauricio Woldenberg '20.
