The Sinai Scholars Society offers a fresh and exciting context for Jewish life and learning on university campuses. It is an integrated program encompassing Torah study, social activities, and national networking opportunities that introduces students to the contemporary significance of the Jewish experience. Participants will have the chance to interact with other students across the country as well as distinguished figures from the world of business and public life as they engage in this unique prospect for Jewish self discovery.
The curriculum at the Sinai Scholars Society doesn’t just pick up where Hebrew school left off. Our courses present the living tradition of authentic Jewish scholarship. We address important issues in modern life in light of the ancient sources, and give you a chance to find your voice in a discussion that stretches across three millennia. Intriguing, challenging, and sophisticated, the learning experience at Sinai Scholars draws you into the pure pleasure of Torah study. More than inspiring and thoughtful ‐‐ it is also fun.
The class meets at Chabad weekly for eight classes. Students participate in the discussion, embark on a field trip, experience a Shabbat and write a paper. And when they’re done, they can meaningfully discuss Judaism’s approach to such issues as faith, family, property, medical and business ethics, relationships, and much more.
Qualified students completing the course are awarded a $350 stipend, and are invited to participate in follow-up leadership events both locally and nationally.
If you are unsure if this is for you, contact Rabbi Menachem to discuss the program.
