JLF Sex, Love, and Romance is a 10-week experiential, conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism on their own terms. We’re interested in asking big questions. Like, Does “the one” exist? What is intimacy? Where do queer people show up in Jewish tradition? What do healthy relationships look like?
We make no claims about the “right” way to practice or not to practice Judaism. Our job is to help you explore the tradition in a safe space, and find your own place, on your terms, Jewishly.
JLF meets once a week, for 10 weeks, for an hour and a half (tentatively 7-8:30pm on Wednesdays). Additionally, fellows earn a $180 stipend for their work on the capstone project at the end of the semester.
How is JLF different from other programs?
Tufts Hillel is a pluralistic, non-denominational organization. That means that we don't believe that there is just "one right way to be Jewish" - the goal of JLF isn't to make you "more religious" or "less religious," but to give you a space to explore what being Jewish could mean to you with a community of interesting and fun people. Put simply, we want you to ask “big questions” about being Jewish, not give you “big answers.”
