JEWISH LEARNING FELLOWSHIPS (JLF)
JLF Adulting - How do you make a temporary home feel permanent? Why do Jews disagree on everything? How do you invent your own Shabbat practice? How to make the right financial decisions and so much more will be discussed every week.
JLF Sex, Love and Romance - Explore what traditional Jewish texts say on intimacy, gender, sexuality, and other related topics. What Judaism actually says about premarital sex, what each person's role is in a relationship, what is intimacy and so much more.
JLF Ask Big Questions - Conversational seminar for students looking to deepen their understanding of Judaism on their own terms. We’re interested in asking big questions. You know, the big stuff — like Who am I? What communities am I a part of? What is worth committing myself to, and why?
JLF Judaism as Art: A Search for Congruity - Can Jewish spiritual practice be understood as a kind of art? How can the artistic process illuminate Jewish living? To address these questions, we will look at some of the themes that have occupied modern art production and consumption, in particular — the presence or absence of the author; the possibility of creations going out of control; the tension between discipline and creative spontaneity in art production, and the poetics of darkness and light. It is our hope by showcasing some of the common themes between classical Jewish texts and modern art that we might begin to imagine a new intersection between Judaism and art.
