Jewish, Personal, & Professional Learning 

We asked you what you wanted this summer and we heard you loud and clear! You’re looking for experiences to add to your resumes, learning opportunities to explore the Jewish topics you’ve always wanted, and cohorts that connect you to other students while you get to advance yourself professionally and personally. So here it is! We’re excited to introduce our very-first summer of learning and connection. All cohorts will meet online and the day/time will be set by the students participating.

Did Jew Know?

Bring your questions about Judaism to this group as we'll cover some basics, some holidays and Jewish ideas, Jewish mysticism, and a little bit on what the tradition offers in this time of pandemic.

Open to all incoming & current students

The Good Place & Judaism

This watch party will be for the comedy "The Good Place" and talking about intersections with Judaism, as well as our own questions and ideas about death and the afterlife. Open whether you've never seen the show or if you've finished it!
