Jewish Learning Fellowships

Together with a group of peers, over dinner each week, we explore Judaism and ourselves.

What does G-d think of my Hinge profile?

The Jewish Learning Fellowships are a 10-week experiential, conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism on their own terms. Together we ask big questions like "How do I heal a broken world when Bio 101 is taking up all my free time?" or "Does Judaism believe in Feminism?" Our job is to help you explore this tradition from a place of curiosity and honesty. The Jewish Learning Fellowship provides a $400 stipend to students who complete the seminar requirements. Learn more about the different tracks and how to apply below.
