What is Boot Camp?
Boot Camp is an intensive, multi-week training program that takes 25-30 select candidates and equips them with the tools they need to effectively advocate for Israel and impact their peers. The program features a combination of lectures, speakers and interactive sessions that raises participants' Israel IQ and teaches them how to go on the offense in their discussions. We do this in a fun and unique way that balances educational and social components, while building future leaders of the organization and active Pro-Israel advocates.
Participants learn from seasoned veterans of FFT and some of the most engaging and recognized Israel and Middle East experts in the world. Past speakers include Alan Dershowitz, Bret Stephens, Israeli diplomat Ron Prosor and former US Ambassador to Morocco Marc Ginsberg.

Is Boot Camp right for me?
- If you know next to nothing about Israel’s history and challenges…. YES!
- If you know a fair amount and are looking to know more… YES!
- If you work professionally in the Jewish or pro-Israel world... YES!
- If you're in the running to be the next US ambassador to Israel... YES!
This program is for young professionals in their 20s and 30s who are committed to becoming pro-Israel advocates and being part of a community and something bigger than themselves. No matter your background or knowledge level, Boot Camp will make you a more informed and better skilled advocate for Israel.
Where is Boot Camp offered?
We currently have four chapters: New York City, Washington, DC, Miami and Boston.
What if I don't live in those cities?
Great question! While we presently only have chapters in those four markets, we are determined to expand to more cities in 2018 and beyond. Additionally, we offer workshops to Jewish community centers, college campus groups and high school students. If you are interested in bringing Boot Camp to your city or a workshop to your community, please contact us.
