We’ve already seen the impact from last year’s conference around the world, as partnerships have been forged between great organizations. The RenÃ© Cassin Fellows Program was founded by representatives of RenÃ© Cassin and CLAL. RenÃ© Cassin is a human rights NGO that uses the experience of the Jewish people, and positive Jewish values, to campaign and educate on universal human rights issues such as discrimination, detention, and genocide.Clal, The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, is a leadership training institute, think tank and resource center.
When Simone Abel of Rene Cassin and Rabbi Sid Schwartz of Clal first ran into each other at Limmud, they had the sense that they might enjoy working together. But it wasn’t until the Siach Conference that they found the time to meet, get to know each other, sit down and start seriously discussing ideas for trans-Atlantic collaboration. The idea for the RenÃ© Cassin Fellows Program (RCFP) was born out of that conversation.
