The JCRC was privileged to host Ilana Krill as our first Communications and Public Diplomacy Fellow. Read Ilana’s poignant op-ed in the Jewish News about her experience working with the JCRC:

Only through my JCRC fellowship has my focus on global issues converged with my connection to Judaism. The JCRC’s impact has emphasized to me how Jewish values and leadership can positively intertwine with critical discussions on global diplomacy, cultural and racial identity and legislative reform. In a pandemic that has altered so many people’s sense of security and identity, my fellowship provided me with a Jewish lens through which to analyze issues I am passionate about, as well as a foundation upon which to continue exploring my place within the Jewish community.

Ilana Krill recently completed a six-month stint as the first communications and public diplomacy fellow for the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Phoenix. The Communications and Public Diplomacy Fellowship program was made possible in part by a generous grant from the Molly Blank Fund.
