What is the Maimonides Leaders Fellowship?
Maimonides Leaders Fellowship provides an experiential education like no other on today’s university campuses. The program, spanning a college semester, brings Judaism alive in a way you have never experienced before. The program engages students with concepts of their Jewish heritage in a mature and sophisticated manner, while offering opportunities to experience the rhythms of modern Jewish life firsthand.
Here in school you are looking to expand your intellectual and social horizons as you prepare yourself for a career that is both satisfying and profitable. No less than our academic pursuits, our Jewish identity needs development if it is to be a relevant part of our lives and allow us to live a more inspired and meaningful future. The Maimonides Leaders Fellowship is dedicated to “connecting modern leaders with ancient wisdom”. You are the leaders of tomorrow, and Judaism’s timeless messages have allowed it to be an extraordinarily powerful force in human history.
By introducing one to the other we believe we can bring about a more educated, passionate, and inspired Jewish tomorrow. As an added incentive, an in recognition of participant’s commitment of valuable time, a cash stipend of $300 is awarded to each fellow upon completion of the Maimonides Leaders Fellowship program.
By the end of the ten week program, students will not only gain a new perspective of the world but of their own life and self, while at the same time becoming more familiar with their roots.
Through guided group discussion, exploration of classic Jewish texts, and the insight of our experienced Maimonides Leaders Fellowships educators you will discover your Jewish identity in an entirely new way
.Our educational content is constantly reviewed to ensure it is engaging, substantive, personal, and empowering.
As with all of MAIMONIDES’s programs, our goal is to allow you to connect in a personal and experiential way. As part of Maimonides you will participate in a Shabbat experience and a formal graduation dinner, where students share their impressions of the program and receive their graduation certificates and stipends. Each of these events will serve to crystallize the concepts you’ve learned and further bond you with your Maimonides Leaders Fellowship cohort.
Because our learning has such a strong discussion component, and because we share multiple Jewish experiences together as part of the MEOR Maimonides Leaders Fellowship curriculum, you are bound to form social bonds with like-minded peers that are anything but superficial. Additionally, our staff is here for you throughout Maimonides and the rest of your college experience to help you take ownership and pride in your Jewish future.
