The Jewish Learning Fellowship is a 10-week experiential (8 class sessions & two shabbat experiences) and conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism, and connect to community at Michigan. JLF is being taught on campuses all over the country, and you can join the Michigan cohort!
We’re interested in asking big questions like: What is my story? What is worth committing myself to, and why? How do we disagree?
We are proud to say that we make no claims about the “right” way to practice or not to practice Judaism. Our goal is to help each participant explore Judaism on your own terms, while in conversation with one another, and the richness of Jewish tradition. *This course is intended for people who do not have a lot of previous experience with Jewish text learning*
Fellows earn a Jewish enrichment scholarship, and enjoy dinner every week, including two Shabbat dinners over the semester.
SPACE IS LIMITED. We may have to conduct short interviews to make sure you are the right fit for the program.
Sessions begin September 16th. The class will be Mondays from 6:00pm-800pm (with two off weeks and two weeks where we will be joining together for Shabbat-dates below).
