Jewish Community Updates

Kol Yisrael

Kol Yisrael: pluralism is a six-week learning cohort about the big questions facing contemporary Israel(is). Together we'll spark meaningful discussions about why Israelis who disagree with each other have compelling reasons to do so. Students will receive a $150 stipend upon completion of the cohort. The registration link is: Kol Yisrael Pluralism application 

Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF)

JLF provides a semester of intellectual and experiential cohort learning for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism. This semester we are offering "Life's Big Questions." We make no claims about the “right” way to practice or not to practice Judaism. Our job is to help you explore the tradition in a safe space, and find your own place, on your terms, Jewishly. Thursdays at 6 pm with dinner.
$180 stipend upon completion of the series.
