HOW DO I JOIN TAMID?
If there is a TAMID chapter at your campus, visit the Chapters page to find more information about your local chapter. Reach out to the chapter’s president or director of recruitment, and ask how you can join. All chapters have a selective recruitment process. If you are too late to join this semester, keep TAMID in mind and apply to join in the future.
HOW DO I START A TAMID CHAPTER AT MY CAMPUS?
If your campus has talented students who are interested in business, we hope you will consider beginning the process of starting a TAMID chapter. We call aspiring chapters TAMID Beta, with a one-year program that must be completed to be considered for full chapterhood. To get started, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’M NOT JEWISH. CAN I JOIN TAMID OR START A TAMID CHAPTER?
Of course you can! TAMID is not a religious organization, and we welcome participants and leaders from all backgrounds. Israel’s story as a hub of innovation is universally appealing. Just as the country attracts business and technology leaders from around the world, TAMID uses “the startup nation” as a tool for teaching business skills to talented students from any background.
I’M NOT A MEMBER OF A TAMID CHAPTER, BUT I’M INTERESTED IN AN INTERNSHIP IN ISRAEL. CAN I APPLY FOR THE FELLOWSHIP?
No. Only active members of a TAMID chapter are eligible for the Fellowship. For TAMID Fellows, a summer in Israel is just one aspect of their involvement in TAMID. We encourage you to join or start a chapter!
WHAT IS TAMID’S RELATIONSHIP WITH LOCAL HILLELS AND JEWISH FEDERATIONS?
We are proud to partner with Hillel, Jewish Federations, and other organizations that share our values of building connections with Israel. While our missions are not identical, we recognize the significant overlap in how we are working to build the next generation’s connection to Israel, and collaborate in a wide variety of ways, predicated on that shared vision. From co-sponsoring events to fundraising to mentorship opportunities, we encourage you to work hand in hand with these organizations.
ARE TAMID GROUP CHAPTERS INVOLVED IN CAMPAIGNS AGAINST BDS?
TAMID Group chapters must abstain from all political activism, including campaigns related to BDS. As a strictly apolitical group, TAMID orients our students to Israel through non-divisive means: experiential business education. Outside of TAMID, our members can choose to be activists for any cause they would like.
