The Chief Rabbi's Ben Azzai Programme - Expression of Interest Form


  • The Chief Rabbi's Ben Azzai Programme

    The Chief Rabbi's Ben Azzai Programme is a new, annual initiative that will take high calibre university students on an immersive international trip to the developing world, to learn about the challenges of poverty, education and social mobility. They will meet with individuals and organisations working in these areas, and will do so within an orthodox framework, becoming ambassadors familiar with the place of social responsibility within Jewish identity. Central to the initiative is the follow up that will take place on return from the trip. Participants will share their experiences widely, within communities, in schools, on campus and beyond.
