Jewish Experience

Our staff teaches the Jewish Learning Fellowship and the Kol Yisrael Fellowship each year, giving students the chance to dive deep into their Jewish identities, and to discuss important topics surrounding Israel. We offer a rotating educator series called Torah and Tacos, in which we invite a new Jewish educator each month to join us and share some torah learning. Along with this we offer one off Jewish learning sessions surrounding Holidays, our Winter Shabbaton weekend retreat, and Shabbat experiences.
