Jewish Learning Fellowship

Spring Quarter 2020

Friends, Food, and Torah

The Jewish Learning Fellowship is the #1 way to plug into Jewish life at UCLA.  The Fellowship is a 10-week conversational seminar on a new Big Question each week.  Cohorts of Fellows meet weekly with a staff educator share a meal, dive deep into a particular topic, and get to know one another.  Upon completion, each Fellow will receive a $250 stipend.


Here's what we have in store for Spring Quarter.  Register now!
