If I could have one wish it would be that the world would be as dynamic, beautiful, frustrating, emotional, intense and international as NewGround is.

The NewGround Professional Fellowship is a place to create, connect and transform. Twenty fellows annually are empowered with the skills, resources, and relationships to strengthen Muslim-Jewish relations in America and advance a shared agenda for change in Los Angeles. From November through June, fellows meet twice per month and  participate in two weekend retreats where they learn from each other and community leaders. Alumni then create projects to impact the larger community.

  • Build skills
  • Engage authentically
  • Explore diversity
