The Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF) is a nine-week experiential seminar for undergraduates looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism on their own terms while making friends and having fun.
We will discuss Jewish perspectives on social justice, asking questions like: What do I do when the world is on fire? Who am I responsible for? What do I do when systems fall apart?
We will ask big questions about life but don’t purport to have any of the answers. We make no claims about the “right” way to practice or not to practice Judaism. We are all works in progress, and we hope to provide you the time and space to consider the big questions and find your own answers.
In addition, we will nourish you (plenty of snacks!) and value your time (after completion of the program you will receive a stipend).
Open to all undergraduate students.

When does the fellowship meet?
We will be meeting on Wednesday evenings from 4:30-5:30 PM. Fellows are required to attend and participate in all sessions to receive a stipend.
Is there homework? Will this cause me more stress?
There is no homework! And students report that JLF is a break from the stress of school and work, not an added burden.
Who is eligible to apply?
Current undergraduates are invited to apply. No previous formal Jewish learning experience is necessary. JLF is open to students from a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds, expressions, and experiences.
Can I apply if I have already participated in JLF?
Returning fellows are welcome to apply, though first-time participants are given priority.
Did you mention a stipend?
First-time fellows earn a $200 stipend at the end of the fellowship.
Student Leaders, have an event to add?
