Jewish Learning Fellowship

What is the Jewish Learning Fellowship? We’re glad you asked! JLF is a 10-week experiential, conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism and the world on their own terms. It is an opportunity for you to surround yourself with friends, create a community, and navigate life’s big questions with mentors who value your growth even after JLF concludes for the semester.

JLF “Life’s Big Questions” is our premiere JLF curriculum, especially excellent for first time JLF applicants. The course focuses on creating space for open and honest discussion on topics such as; friendship, Israel, honesty, sex and intimacy, drugs and alcohol, and many many more!

JLF “Pursuing Justice” challenges systems and invites students to think about the ways in which they might be able to be shifters and changemakers within their power. This content is especially relevant for students interested in exploring or already involved with a social justice community or interest.

JLF 2.0 follows JLF: Life’s Big Questions and is a more complex version of similar questions in Jewish life. This content is only available to alumni of JLF who want more, and are excited to stay engaged with the JLF community.

Fall 2021 applications are now open! If you are interested in learning more, please reach out to: Robyn Markowitz Lawler at [email protected] or Rabbi Rob Gleisser at [email protected].

JLF is a program of Hillel International on over 130 campuses across North America! Should you be accepted to the program, you will receive occasional communications from JLF, such as retreats, contests, and surveys to help Hillel understand your experience in the program.
