Fellows may live anywhere within the Sovereign State of Israel, though all Fellows must be able to attend all DFI Weekly Seminars, which are typically in the center of the country (Jerusalem and Tel Aviv).
Fellows are expected to make their own living arrangements in Israel and are urged to live with Israelis. Fellows begin the Program Year with a two-week Orientation: one week in the U.S., followed by one week in Israel. Upon completion of the Orientation, Fellows will be given accommodations for a brief period during which they must arrange their permanent living situation.
Detailed information about how to identify living arrangements are provided to Fellows upon their acceptance to the program.
