Jewish Ethics and Public Policy
With Rabbi Sara Rich
What is the Jewish stance on immigration, distribution of wealth, warfare, and freedom of speech? That is for you to study and debate. In this fellowship, you will deepen your knowledge of key public policy issues, and will learn how Jewish teachings contribute to the larger conversation.
The fellowship includes:
- Study of Jewish sources about issues of domestic and international policy
- Weekly class debates
- Guest speakers from Jewish policy-centered NGOs
- An advocacy trip to Washington, DC
Facilitated by Rabbi Sara Rich, Director of Education, this fellowship meets weekly over dinner on Mondays, 6:45-8:30. Dinner is fully subsidized for students without a meal plan.
