SF Hillel Jewish Learning Fellowship Application
The Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF) Israel : Home and Homeland is a 10-week experiential, conversational cohort for graduate students looking to better understand their relationship to the idea and complexity of Israel on their own terms. We’re interested in asking big questions. How might Jewish tradition inspire an ethos for how we engage with the concept of home and shared homeland? What role does location, spiritual connection, and collective history play in our narrative of home?  How do we hold personal identity in dialogue with broader historical and contemporary communal narratives? What responsibilities do we hold for the people and places we are connected to? How might we live with intention and in tension with multiple truths?  

To address these enduring questions, JLF Israel: H&H follows a 10-session arc to explore the diaspora relationship to Israel, looking to classical, rabbinic, and modern Jewish wisdom to engage a contemporary understanding of peoplehood, responsibility, home, and homeland.

We make no claims that there are “right” views, opinions, or relationship to Israel. Our job is to help you explore this relationship in a safe space and find your own place, on your terms, through curious discussion in community.
