Jewish Learning

Hillel offers a wide range of educational programs that empower students to explore Jewish texts and tradition and to grapple with contemporary issues through a Jewish lens.  Fellowships and learning series for the fall 2018 semester include:

Jewish Learning Fellowship: Life's Big ?'s

JLF is an experiential, conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism on their own terms.  We're asking big questions - and we know there's no one answer.  Fellows will meet over tapas throughout the semesterr; those who fulfill the Fellowship expectations will earn a $150 stipend.  No prior experience with Jewish learning is required!  Meets ten Wednesdays, 4:00-5:30 PM, beginning September 26.  Sign up here.

Lilith: A Jewish-Feminist Fellowship

Be part of Hillel's Jewish feminist cohort and conversation!  This program is open to people of all gender identities who are interested in exploring the intersection of Judaism and feminism.  Meets six Tuesdays, 6:00-7:30 PM, beginning October 16.  Sign up here.

(is)Real Talk: Explore, Question, Learn

This is an opportunity to get real about Israel, to ask big questions, and to learn together in a supportive environment.  What kind of alignment or tension is there between the Israel we imagine and the Israel we hear about?  If you have feelings about this question, add your voice to the conversation!  Meets four Mondays, 6:00-8:00 PM, starting October 22.  Sign up here.

Race, Privilege, & Antisemitism Dialogue Series

This series will explore some of the big questions of identity facing American Jews in 2018.  How does Jewishness intersect with ideas of racial identity and privilege?  What does it mean to engage on issues of racial justice through a Jewish lens?  A partnership with AU's Center for Diversity and Inclusion.  Meets four Wednesdays, 6:00-8:00 PM, starting October 24.  Sign up here.
