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

Tova Leibovic Douglas, NewGround ’14 Change-maker

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 September through April, Change-Makers 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.
