Jewish Incubator Fellowship (JIF)
The Jewish Incubator Fellowship provides funding and mentorship for students to realize some sort of Stanford dream project in a Jewish context. JIF fellows created initiatives around micro communities and themes, including intercommunal relationships, tikkun olam (repairing the world), Jewish life and ritual, and a personal relationship with Israel. Contact Jeremy to get started.
Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF)
The Jewish Learning Fellowship provides a semester of intellectual and experiential learning for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism. This quarter we will be approaching Life's Big Questions: Or, How to Get More Out of College. Jewish Learning Fellows meet weekly over dinner and are offered a $300 stipend. Application available soon.
Israel and Peoplehood Series
Are you Jewishly curious and eager to learn about the people you belong to? Then join us!
Together, we’ll explore centuries old and contemporary issues through a Jewish lens: social justice, universalism vs particularism, antisemitism and antizionism, power and responsibility and much more.
A stipend is offered to participating students. Contact Nathalie for more information.
The Moos fellowship offers a series of intimate discussions with diverse individuals, offering the opportunity to explore complex identities, intersectionality and discuss the ways we choose to be (and do) Jewish in today’s complex reality. In the words of one past participant:
I am Jewish, but my identity is multifaceted: interfaith family.... gay. In some sense, all of the speakers in the series talked about the loss of not drawing attention to diverse perspectives in the Jewish community.
A stipend is offered to participating students. Contact Nathalie if interested.
