A Torah is had by me waitlist. I have now been told at panels some time once again that young adults have an interest in Jewish experiences with low barriers to entry. We have see the studies that let me know young adults look to Jewish offerings with universal aspirations, like social justice. And, i’ve seen reports that tell me Jewish spaces with an excessive amount of a flavor that is particularistic down young Jews.
While we just take these reports, studies, and panels really, they be seemingly lacking a vital truth about young adults on campus today: they crave content and community. They have been shopping for Torah.
I understand this because We run the Jewish Learning Fellowship (JLF) for Hillel’s Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Enjoy, which this current year has 3,300 students enrolled on 139 campuses in a 10-week cohort based, pluralistic Torah research seminar. That is a 300 per cent enhance from 1 12 months ago. Pupils in JLF invest a night each week learning Torah in an agreeable, conversational setting and then be involved in Shabbat experiences making use of their cohort.
