Jewish Learning Fellowship: Life’s Big Questions

Wednesdays 12:15-1:30pm starting September 13

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. Dinner and snacks will be provided at every session. Jenna Citron, Assistant Director and Rav Sara Zacharia, Senior Jewish Educator, will serve as JLF Educators. All C.L.U.E. participants will attend a special C.L.U.E. Shabbaton and Commencement Celebration! Participants who attend all 10 sessions plus CLUE Shabbat are eligible for a $300 stipend.

  

The Jewish Learning Fellowship: Judaism as Art

Thursdays 7:00-8:30pm

Judaism as Art attempts to highlight congruities between Jewish thought and modern art production. It is organized around themes and questions that animate the creative process, such as working in solitude versus collaboration, pulls of inspiration and calls to discipline, discerning one's creative voice and purpose, and beyond. Dinner and snacks will be provided at every session. Rav Sara Zacharia, Senior Jewish Educator and Jonathan Rahmani, Springboard Fellow, will serve as JLF Educators. All C.L.U.E. participants will attend a special C.L.U.E. Shabbaton and Commencement Celebration! Participants who attend all 10 sessions plus CLUE Shabbat are eligible for a $300 stipend.

 

 

What Else? 

The Circles of Exploration and Understand place as much focus on experience and community building as they do on engagement and education. Circles strive to create a great user experience, lasting friendships, deep and meaningful conversations, and community. To reach those goals we developed a list of 7 touch points students will experience.

  1.     Break Bread - eat together
  2.     Feel welcome
  3.     Cultivate new friendships
  4.     Walk away having learned something new
  5.     Experience 1 Shabbat together (Shabbaton with a special clue discount!)  - 2/24 - 2/25
  6.     Participate in a “Siyyum”- end of year celebration and learning opportunity
  7.     Feel more deeply connected to Hillel and Jewish life
