Last year over 150 students graduated from JLF and joined hundreds of others in asking the question "what now?" Here's your answer:

[1]*brand new* JLF BEIT MIDRASH (house of study) launches October 19th

what is it? 
Each week you and a partner (you pick or we pick) will learn together either on a topic of your choosing or one that Rachmiel Gurwitz, our incredible rabbinic intern, will help select (either way we'll provide the source material!). You'll spend most of the time batting around ideas with that partner and then all pairs will join together for a short discussion in the middle of the session. apply here.

sample schedule: 

  • 7pm JLF beit midrash is open

  • 7:45pm jlf style group discussion

  • 9pm beit midrash closes

Some pairs will do their learning  7-8:15, some will learn in pairs between 7:45-9, and some will just be there the whole time!

stipend info:
Folks who want a $100 stipend will commit to Jewish learning for 3 hours per week (which can include lectures like Tuesday night's Think program). Like JLF, joining the JLF Beit Midrash is a full semester commitment (unlike JLF, you can do it every semester!).To apply fill out this short application by October 8th.

[2] chavurah is back!

chavurah is like JLF but on any topic and led by a student. The leader meets with Rachmiel one or two times to develop a topic and sources, and then leads the discussion. Chavurah will take place Tuesday nights from 8-9pm.  If you think you're up to leading a Chavurah, please email Rachmiel ASAP, the calendar is filling up!


The nastywomen track was such a success last year we couldn't pass on it this year! It will meet Wednesdays from 12 to 1:30 (BYO lunch!) starting October 18th. Email Rabbi Nikki if you are interested - like JLF this is a weekly commitment.

I'm a little obsessed, can I do them all?

Still have questions?
We would love to answer them! Email Rachmiel about Chavurah or the JLF Beit Midrash (or just to meet him!) and Rabbi Nikki for #nastywomenstudytorah.
