Amidst these challenging and changing times, Diller Teen Fellows Cape Town has found creative ways to continue programming and making global connections with fellows from our 32 communities.
Diller Teen Fellows is more active than ever — supporting each other and using this time to learn, network and grow as a cohort.
Although our Israeli partnership, Shoham, was unable to visit us this year for our annual exchange, we have still ensured opportunities to create meaningful connections virtually. In one of these partnership sessions we participated in a song-writing workshop led by indie supergroup ‘Distant Cousins.’ Together we wrote and recorded a personalised song that reflects our partnership spirit.
Some other exciting events that have taken place over the past few months include
A Cape Town and Johannesburg virtual challah bake.
Several ‘Global Zoom Mixers’ with various other international Diller communities to share and compare Jewish experiences.
Guest speakers sharing insights into world views including renowned motivational speaker and comedian Pamela Rae Schuller.
A Diller style Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration — a virtual celebration of Israel’s independence on a global platform.
Fellows’ Stage — A session prepared and run entirely by our Cape Town cohort, sharing their passions and teaching us new skills.
And much more!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Cape Town Diller family — parents and fellows — for their continued encouragement and support during this time! Because of you, our programme has been able to continue and to flourish during this difficult chapter.
