International Fellowships

The Council of American Jewish Museums offers competitive fellowships for international learning opportunities. Fellowships are designed to immerse members in learning experiences abroad, with special access to leading colleagues, institutions, and sites—as well as opportunities to talk with professionals about the work of Jewish museums globally.

Thanks to the Koret Foundation and an Anonymous Fund, CAJM's most recent International Fellowship took place in to Poland in October 2017. Designed by Taube Jewish Heritage Tours, with counsel from CAJM Advisor Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, the five fellowship recipients visited POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews and other sites in Warsaw; Chmielnik, Dabrowka Tarnowska, and Tarnow; the Auschwitz Jewish Center; Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum; and sites in Krakow, including the Galicia Jewish Museum and the Jewish Quarter.
