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. 


We will have two JLF cohorts this fall: one focusing on Life's Big Questions and one on Judaism and Art! The "Life's Big Questions" cohort looks at major topics in life through a Jewish lens and the "Judaism and Arts" series uses Judaism as a lens to explore various arts related themes and will include creating art (visual, music, writing, dance, etc) for a final gallery exhibition. Questions? Email megan@metrochicagohillel.org (ARTS) or anna@metrochicagohillel.org (Life's Big Questions)

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 Silverstein Base Hillel in Lincoln Park on MONDAY nights and include one Shabbat Dinner. 

Sessions begin Sept 18th and will meet every Monday night after through the week of Thanksgiving!

The date for Shabbat Dinner is still TBD, but the other dates are
