They say, “Two Jews, three opinions.” Now, imagine a dialogue with ten.
Join the Jewish Life Council, a pluralistic forum for discussing the big questions that all modern Jews must grapple with. What is the purpose of Jewish community? What role should Jewish tradition play in my life? Why do we pray?
This fellowship allows motivated students to take advantage of the diversity of Princeton’s Jewish community. By providing a forum for meaningful reflection and discussion, participants of any background will gain a richer understanding of some of the ways that Judaism impacts our lives, both as individuals and as a community.
The ideal candidate is thoughtful, respectful, and willing to participate in open discussions of his or her Jewish identity. No prior Jewish experience is presumed or required; only a desire to question, think critically, and engage with Judaism as a piece of our identities. Students must be committed to regular attendance of fellowship sessions, and to creating a safe space for the sharing of deeply held beliefs.
Facilitated by Sara Wolkenfeld and Rabbi Sara Rich
