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. This semester's JLF cohort will focus on topics of social justice, civic engagement, activism and volunteering. We'll be looking at traditional and modern Jewish sources, hearing from local community leaders, and get our hands dirty in the work of improving our local community.

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 home-cooked 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 Base Hillel in Lincoln Park and include one Shabbat Dinner. The date of the week will be determined by applicants feedback, and determined by the new year. On your application you will have the opportunity to say which weekday works best for you.

Sessions begin the week of January 30

Apply here!  Applications are due January 20th, but apply by December 18th for preferential admission, and to help pick the day of the week.
