What is Gesher?
Since October 7th, we’ve felt many things—grief, mourning, anger, fear, confusion. One thing has been missing: dialogue. Gesher: Building Bridges is a new Tufts Hillel initiative aimed at bridging the divides within the Jewish community.
Gesher fellows will study diverse perspectives on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a focus on seeing the other and building bridges, particularly amid the ongoing war. We will delve into important themes, including identity, diaspora, humanization, and challenging hate. This is a student-led fellowship designed for all students—Jewish and allies alike—committed to shared learning, open to new experiences, and respectful toward diverse voices.
As a fellows you will have the opportunity to explore your own views in a challenging, tolerant, and respectful environment. The fellowship will feature a highly subsidized trip over Patriots’ Day Weekend to hear insightful speakers and come together in pursuit of collective healing.
