For FZY chanichim returning to the UK at the end of Year Course, it is important for them to have the knowledge and skills to be able to feel a strong sense of pride in their Zionist and Jewish identity. Throughout the Year Course programme chanichim will be provided with an ongoing course explaining the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict as well as analysis and examination of current events in Israel and the Middle East.
FZY Year Course chanichim will also take part in training programmes and seminars that will provide the skills necessary to use the knowledge that they have gained on Year Course to be advocates of Israel. Whether at University, through the media and press, or in discussions with family, friends and colleagues, the skills based programme will allow FZY chanichim to have the tolls to feel a strong sense of pride in who they are and what they believe in.
FZY works with The David Project, BICOM, The Israel Project and a number of other organizations to build our Advocacy programme. In addition we also have internationally renowned speakers that have included, Gil Troy (Author, professor and newspaper columnist), Mark Regev (Prime Minister Spokesman), Rabbi Michael Melchior (Former Government Minister), Yariv Oppenheimer (Director of Peace Now) and many others.
The Israel Advocacy programme within the FZY Year Course programme is the most developed and wide ranging programme that is currently available on any Gap Year programme and we are constantly looking to increase its scope and quality.
