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.

What our students say
" In Hillel's Jewish Learning Fellowship, we talked about things that I never would have talked about in a regular academic setting...it gave me the opportunity to explore something within Judaism that’s relevant among my age... "
