Jewish Learning Fellowship

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.

Life's Big Questions
Or how to get more of college through Judaism

R Melissa and KendraCollege is often the first time that we get to decide who we want to be in a lot of our identities. For the first time, we're on our own... so who do we want to be? What communities am I a part of? Who am I responsible for and why? What is the difference between love, lust and intimacy? What is worth committing myself to and why? While these are universal questions, we believe that they can be illuminated through the unique light of Jewish text. In this seminar, we will seek to explore these questions together.

Questions? Email Rabbi Melissa:

What you give: A weekly commitment of your time, an open mind, a hunger to learn

What you’ll get: A new great group of friends, engaging lessons and discussions, group dinners with delicious food, a generous stipend for your time

Applicants are required to attend all JLF sessions to receive the stipend. Sessions will be over dinner at North Carolina Hillel (210 West Cameron Ave) on Wednesday nights from 6:40-8pm and include one Shabbat Dinner.

Sessions begin January 17 and will meet every Wednesday night throughout the semester (except Spring Break and Passover)!

The date for Shabbat Dinner is still TBD.
