Cohort Description:

Our tradition recounts the stories of the leaders of our people with admiration and thoughtful critique. From Abraham to Moses, from Judah Maccabee to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, understandings of Jewish leaders’ voices shape our collective values. In these lunchtime sessions, we’ll look at Jewish texts based around narratives of leadership and engage the teachings of several professors of leadership through UChicago’s Booth School of Business.

This class is open to 1st and 2nd year students. Participants who participate fully in the class and complete a final project will be eligible for $150 stipend.

This 5 week commitment begins Tuesday, April 23 includes once a week cohort get-togethers on Tuesdays at 12:30-1:45m and one Shabbat dinner.

The Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF) is an experiential, conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism on their own terms. We’re interested in asking big questions. You know, the big stuff — like Who am I? What communities am I a part of? What is worth committing myself to, and why? And we don’t purport to have any of the big answers. JLF was founded in 2007 at the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at NYU. Since then, JLF has graduated over 3,000 fellows.

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, in Judaism’s Great Conversation.
