life’s big questions: or, Jewish adulting 101
You're in college. So, you're an adult now, right? Feel like you should have all the answers? This 10-week conversational fellowship brings together a group of students trying to figure out how to be adults, and what place Jewishness has in all this. We'll ask and answer questions like, How do I make friends? What can I expect in a sexual relationship? How can I cope with conflict? What do I actually believe in? As in, Who do I want to become? Recommended for first-year students; open to all undergraduates.

It might be easy to assume that pop culture has no rules about sex, and Judaism has only restrictions. But that's not the whole picture. This 10-week seminar explores the ethics of sex, gender, sexuality, and intimacy in the Jewish tradition. No topic is taboo; our approach is open-minded and non-judgmental. see the slr syllabus
Ever wonder how you might possibly unpack your experience on that service trip to Ghana last spring break? In this 10-week conversational fellowship, join a group of students interested in exploring how we navigate the seemingly unlimited opportunities to respond to injustice in our world. How has Jewish tradition grappled with the need to assist those in need? Together, we'll cultivate thoughtful discussion and radically honest reflection about the intersection of Judaism and social justice. Open to all undergraduates in their sophomore year or higher.
