Questioning Judaism

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

What does God think of my tinder profile?

The Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF) is 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. JLF provides a $250 stipend to students who complete the seminar requirements. Learn more about the JLF tracks and how to apply below.
