Hartman Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Thought Leaders: [email protected]

The Jewish people are facing important questions about citizenship, nationalism, democracy and the societies in which we live. COVID-19 has already reshaped our attitudes about collective community and what it means to be ‘at-home,’ and is raising issues of theology, spirituality, and social responsibility.

Join this national cohort of exceptional high school students and meet virtually with top Hartman scholars like Tal Becker, Elana Stein Hain, Yehuda Kurtzer, and Mijal Bitton to grapple with these issues through interactive webinars, study groups, and intimate discussions for a month-long exploration of Jewish peoplehood, at-homeness, and the contemporary challenges facing North American Jewish identity in this moment.

Dates:

Tuesday, July 7 – Wednesday, August 5, 2020

Eligibility:

A limited number of North American high school students graduating in 2020, 2021 or 2022. 

Additional Fellowship Details:

  • Most programming will occur between 12:45 -3:30 pm EDT, Monday – Friday
  • Fellowship will culminate in peer-led educational experiences
