What is the Maimonides Leaders Fellowship?

Founded in the late-1990s at the University of Michigan, the Maimonides Leaders Fellowship has since spread to 35 campuses throughout North America and Israel. The program, spanning 8 or 9 week nights, engages students with the texts and concepts of their Jewish heritage in a mature and sophisticated manner. It is also recognized by the University of Wisconsin.

Maimonides brings together quality Jewish students in a relaxed environment where you can be yourself and build great friendships. In Maimonides, you will convene weekly for two 45 min discussions, featuring guest speakers like Jewish scientists, teachers of mysticism, physicians, and black-belt martial artist rabbis, as well as lectures and discussions linking you, the modern Jewish student, with the ancient wisdom of your Jewish heritage. You will explore deeply topics such as Shabbat, the Jewish Holidays, Relationships, Why We Do the Things We Do, Kosher, G-d and Jewish Spirituality, Gender in Judaism and much more. Rounding out the evening is a home made supper where you can enjoy delicious food, play some pool and just chill.

In the Fellowship you will also participate in transformational off-campus excursions, such as a traditional full Shabbat experience, a ski trip/social activity, and a formal graduation dinner, where students share their impressions of the program and receive their graduation gifts.

Did we forget to mention that upon completion participants receive a full trip to Israel – valued at $4000 for only $300 (this is besides for their Birthright trip) or $300 cash.

Discover why Maimonides has drawn thousands of participants and earned a vaunted reputation internationally. Take ownership over your own Jewish journey, through the program that has already connected scores of “modern leaders with ancient wisdom.”
