Jewish Agency Israel Fellow


Gal Malka

In partnership with the Jewish Agency for Israel, Stony Brook Hillel now has a full-time Israel Fellow as a member of the Hillel staff.



As Stony Brook Hillel’s Jewish Agency Israel Fellow, I engage students to enhance their knowledge base about Israel. In order to accomplish this important goal, I’m facilitating Israel cultural and educational programs on campus, recruit students to participate in programs in Israel, and reaching out to students to help them connect to Jewish life through connections with Israel.

One of my goals for the next two years is to increase the number of students participating in Birthright.

Stony Brook Hillel is offering for Medical students “Kesher Refuah” program. “Kesher Refuah” is an annual Global Health and Cultural Connections summer program in Israel for six 1st year medical students.

My biggest pride this year is my wonderful Israel interns that doing amazing work. The Israel interns are Stony Brook students that working with pro-Israel organizations; The David Project, Hasbarah Fellowships, Stand with Us and IAC. 

Israel continues to be an effective engagement tool, providing students with various access points in which they can connect to peers and Jewish experiences, in a way that is meaningful and authentic for them.
