Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Thought Leaders

Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Thought Leaders

What does it mean to be a part of the Jewish people? What unites us and what divides us? In a polarized world, how should we, as young Jews, respond to the challenges facing us?

Are you an intellectually curious Jewish teen who loves to ask big questions and dive deep into complex issues? Do you care about politics and Jewish values? Are you a seeker? We’re saving you a seat at the most important table for future Jewish leaders.

This Fellowship is your opportunity to learn with world renowned scholars who are producing the most cutting-edge Jewish scholarship around important issues today. Join an elite community of peers from across North America. Be a part of the conversation.
