MJE Fellowships, now in its 14th Year with 207 graduates to date is a select cadre of MJE participants with little or no prior Jewish education who have expressed a desire to move their Jewish learning to the next level. The program seeks to educate and helps to produce knowledgeable and passionate leaders for the future. The fellowship was dedicated in honor of Rabbi Dr. Norman Lamm for his years of extraordinary scholarship and leadership on behalf of the Jewish people.


Applications for the MJE Fellowship are currently open for the 2021-2022 class!

Priority is given to people who have been active in the MJE community and have had a limited Jewish education. All applicants must be in their 20s or 30s and recommended by an MJE educator.

The Fellowship classes covers a wide range of Jewish topics, to form a well rounded curriculum. From characters, stories, and themes in Tanach, to practical Jewish law, Jewish history and Jewish Philosophy, and everything in between, the MJE Fellowship classes afford the participant the fundamentals of what it means to be a Jew. The curriculum is split into two parts: Next Level and Fellowship @ 9:15. Next Level courses are at 8 PM and Fellowship @ 9:15 is every Wednesday at 9:15 PM. Check out this year's courses below!
