Jewish Learning Fellowship

JLF (the Jewish Learning Fellowship) is an 4-10 week conversation series over a meal. It’s run by Maryland Hillel – the official hub for Jewish life on campus.

Hillel is a pluralistic, non-denominational organization, and so is JLF. That means that we don’t believe that there is just “one right way to be Jewish.” The goal of JLF is to give you a space to explore what being Jewish could mean to you when you bring your whole self to the table. Put simply, ask big questions together and explore our own answers with a community of interesting and fun people. Questions like, “What’s the difference between a group and a community?” and “How do you disagree productively?” and “How do I make a temporary home feel permanent?”. Every week, what we discuss is shaped by your questions and interests!

This semester we’re offering three options for JLF:

10-week session – Tuesdays, 6:30-8:00pm on South Campus (starts Feb 11)

4-week session – Wednesdays 6:30-7:00pm on North Campus (starts Feb 12)

4-week session – Thursdays 6;30-8:00pm on North Campus (starts March 26th)

All cohorts will meet on Friday, March 6th for an amazing JLF Shabbat dinner at Hillel.
