JLF: Jewish Learning Fellowship

 

Jewish Learning Fellowship: Life's Big Questions

Wednesdays during Free Hour beginning 2/20/19

JLF is a 10-week experiential, conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Jewish life on their own terms. We’re going to ask BIG questions, but we don’t claim to have one “right answer”. JLF is for students that are seeking knowledge but requires no previous knowledge or participation in Jewish life - at all. The ideal candidate is just beginning to explore what Jewish life and Jewish culture means
them. Lunch will be provided at every session. Spencer Perdek, Springboard Fellow and Rav Sara Zacharia, Senior Jewish Educator, will serve as JLF Educators. This program is intended for students who are looking to make new friends and get involved in Jewish life on campus. Participants who attend all 10 sessions plus Shabbat and End of Year Celebration are eligible for a $300 stipend. 

 

Jewish Learning Fellowship: What's Jewish about Social Justice?

Tuesdays 5:00-6:30pm beginning 2/19/19

Pursing Justice provides an opportunity to explore how Jewish tradition grapples with the need to assist those in need? How do we navigate the seemingly unlimited opportunities available to make a difference in today’s world? How to we determine who needs our attention, work and money? Is our understanding of social justice separate from our Jewish values, tradition and identity? IN this JLF seminar we will seek to
cultivate thoughtful discussion and radically honest reflection about the intersection of Judaism and Social Justice. The ideal candidate is interested in exploring Jewish life,
culture and identity. Dinner will be provided at every session. Spencer Perdek, Springboard Fellow and Rav Sara Zacharia, Senior Jewish Educator, will serve as JLF Educators. This program is intended for students who are looking to make new friends and get involved in Jewish life on campus. Participants who attend all 10 sessions
plus Shabbat and Siyyum are eligible for a $300 stipend.
