The René Cassin – AJA Fellowship Programme (RCFP) brings together a cohort of exceptional professionals to explore human rights issues through a unique Jewish lens.
What does the RCFP entail?
Five knowledge based evening sessions looking at current human rights issues.
A trip to European city.
Four skills based evening sessions looking at the tools needed to make positive change.
A project using all of the above knowledge and skills to create change…
Who is the RCFP for?
The programme has no fixed age limit – the cohort benefits from a real mixture of age and experience. If you are interested in increasing your knowledge of human rights and Jewish visions of a just society, the RCFP is right for you.
What are the programme’s objectives?
- To deepen and broaden participants’ knowledge and understanding of human rights principles and Jewish visions of a just society – through the study of Jewish experience and values and contemporary international human rights issues
- To galvanise a movement of Jewish social activists who will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to promote social justice and human rights in the UK
- To create a group of deeply committed human rights advocates who are actively involved in René Cassin’s campaigning and mobilisation work
René Cassin is a pluralist organisation, and we welcome applicants from all levels of religious observance. If you observe Shabbat or any level of kashrut, please let us know and we will be delighted to accommodate this.
