Fall Learning Fellowships!
We are so excited to offer THREE different learning fellowships for this semester! Check out below for a description on each of the different fellowships.
Jewish Learning Fellowship, Ask Big Questions - A 10 week conversation-style learning opportunity. With Jewish texts, we will be exploring and discussing some big life questions including Who am I? What communities am I a part of? What is worth committing myself to, and why? and many more. This is open to all Jewish students no matter your experience with learning Jewish texts. This class is not to teach you the "right" way to practice or not to practice Judaism. This class is an opportunity to build community with other students on campus and discuss questions we come across every day through the lens of Jewish texts.
After completion of JLF, you will receive a $300 stipend. There will be two cohorts for JLF, one will be meet Sunday from 7-8:30 pm and the other will meet Monday from 7-8:30 pm.
Israel Learning Fellowship - A 10-week conversational and cohort-focused seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of, and explore their relationship to, Israel - on their own terms. We'll be focusing on discussions around big questions, including:
- What are we talking about when we talk about Israel, and what is my relationship with that concept?
- How might my identity be bound up with Israel, its people, its policies, and its history?
- How might the categories of race apply to Jewish identity? What about Israelis?
We invite you to explore these tough topics and many more in a safe, open environment and explore your own relation to Israel, on your own terms.
After completion of ILF, you will receive a $200 stipend. ILF will meet Tuesdays from 7-8 pm.
Farm to Hillel Fellowship - 5 weeks of learning and connection to the land of Vermont.Ideas, texts, wisdom, & questions from Jewish tradition to understand the present. Led by Hillel's Executive Director Matt Vogel, and featuring exclusive live-streams from his 100+ chickens, gardens, and land in Addison County, this cohort experience is for first and second year students who love gardening, sustainable living, and Jewish vibes. Each week will include a new homesteading skill and time to engage in life's biggest questions with new friends. No prior Jewish knowledge necessary!
After completion of Farm to Hillel Fellowship, you will receive a $100 stipend. Farm to Hillel Fellowship will meet Thursday afternoons from 1:30 - 2:30 pm.
All classes will take place virtually through Zoom. In addition, to attending your weekly class, every student will participate in a Shabbat experience with their fellowship cohort.
