Each year, Germany Close Up is able to offer ten Jewish partner organizations the opportunity to bring a select cohort of leaders from their organization to Germany. When choosing our partners, we are intentionally selective, in order to ensure that we include organizations that work with a diverse range of religious and political backgrounds. Despite having many long-standing partners, we are open to creating new partnerships with new organizations. Currently, we are planning programs at least one year in advance.
Organizations interested in running a program should have the capacity to recruit a group of 20 to 25 participants. Organizations with more limited capacities are more than welcome to submit a joint application with another organization. While all Germany Close Up programs have the same general framework, partners are able to tailor their program by setting their own individual thematic focus, which can be done in consultation with our staff.
Interested partners should submit a formal application outlining why their community would benefit from partnering with us and their short and long term goals for the partnership. For further details on this application or on a partnership in general, please contact our office.
