Jewish Learning Fellowship

Jewish Learning Fellowship - Sex, Love, and Relationships

Led by Rabbi Jonah

For many of us, sexuality and intimacy are some of the issues that matter most, but around which we receive the least guidance. The Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF) is a conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism on their own terms over a meal.  Over the semester we will talk through Jewish ideas about gender, sexuality, intimacy, and sexual ethics through a broad range of sources in Jewish thought in a way that honors our minds and bodies and respects our position as modern, thoughtful adults. Click here to apply for the fall semester cohort! $200 stipend awarded upon completion of the fellowship.

Judaism Through 13 Objects

Judaism Through 13 Objects

Led by Rabbi Jonah

Thursdays 1:30-2:15pm

This class will offer an opportunity to root your Jewish life, fill in the gaps of your Jewish education, or offer a place for you to ask all those questions about “doing Jewish” you’ve always wanted to ask. We’ll meet once a week to learn about a different aspect of Jewish life and practice, grounded in an exploration of our people’s material culture. By looking at the physical things that enable and support Jewish practice we will delve into the big questions about what Judaism is and how it can fit into our lives.
