iEngage Clergy Student Fellowship

Applications are now open for the 2021 iEngage Clergy Student Fellowship, an immersive cohort experience that brings together students representing seminaries from across the denominational spectrum in North America to create community and engage in dialogue about the significance of Israel for North American Jewish life. Applications due by Friday, April 16, 2021.

Through Jewish ideas-based content and the unique Hartman approach of applied Jewish thought, fellows will learn a new narrative for thinking about Israel and its relevance for the communities they will serve, elevating the discourse from one that is crisis-based to one rooted in Jewish values and ideas.

Fellows benefit from cross-denominational relationship building, deep learning on facilitating healthier conversations about Israel in their rabbinates and cantorates, and the opportunity to learn with premier Shalom Hartman Institute faculty.
