StandWithUs, an international, non-partisan education organization that supports Israel and fights antisemitism, is pleased to announce the 2022-23 students participating in its high school and campus programs.
The StandWithUs 2022-23 Kenneth Leventhal High School interns are: Noa Dor (Johns Creek High School), Noa Shefler (Alpharetta High School), Carly Freiman (George Walton Comprehensive High School), Franklin Silverman (The Weber School) and Aiden Smolensky (Atlanta Jewish Academy).
College sophomores Gabriela Lefkovits (University of Georgia), Aliza Freilich (Emory University) and junior Gabriel Grau (Kennesaw State University) are the 2022-23 StandWithUs Emerson Fellows.
Like previous years, the local student leaders join 150 students who were selected for each of the two programs throughout North America.
Created in 2012, the StandWithUs Kenneth Leventhal High School internship selects and trains student leaders from high schools throughout the United States and Canada to teach about Israel at their schools and to combat antisemitism. During the two-semester program, the Leventhal interns, who are juniors and seniors, identify the educational needs at their schools as they pertain to Israel and to antisemitism, whether they are rooted in misinformation, ignorance or outright hatred. Then, working with their StandWithUs regional high school managers, they develop a strategy to meet those needs through relevant and practical educational programming.
Founded in 2007, the year-long Emerson Fellowship is a prestigious program that trains, educates and empowers student leaders on college campuses around the world. Chosen from key campuses, Emerson Fellows lead their campus communities, engage and inspire their peers through impactful educational events, campaigns and discussions about Israel.
These fellows are also trained extensively on how to navigate antisemitic activity on campus, and how to mobilize and confront these issues strategically and effectively. Throughout their experience, Emerson Fellows are plugged into a global community of student leaders where they can exchange ideas, share best practices and support each other.
