1. Who are we looking for?
Social connectors – If you love meeting new people, helping others find and create community, and are interested in creating diverse opportunities for Jewish life, this is for you! Must be open to learning new skills, growing personally, and being part of a team.
2. How much of a time commitment is this?
Time will differ depending on the week, but on average we expect 5-6 hours per week plus a Fellows meeting every 2 weeks.
3. What if I can’t attend the scheduled Fellows meetings?
Once the group of Fellows is hired we will plan meetings around individual’s schedules. You may miss no more than one meeting over the course of the Fellowship. The immersive training and capstone trip are both required, as they are key aspects of the Fellowship experience.
4. Where will the Fellows meetings be held?
We will base locations on convenience for the group once we know where people live and work.
5. What is Immersive training and what will it entail?
Immersive training will take place from a Friday – Sunday in the winter at an off-site location outside of the city. It will include team building, professional skills, and a deeper review of the Fellowship.
6. What will success look like?
The goals of this Fellowship are to foster a pro-sumer model meaningful Jewish life, where individuals are a part of creating catered experiences for themselves and their community. This may happen through existing events and opportunities, or new initiatives that emerge from within your community. Success will be achieved through a relationship-based approach to Jewish life. There are many models of success depending on each Fellow and their community.
7. Do I need specific Jewish background to participate?
No! There will be no assumption of previous Jewish knowledge as a part of this fellowship
