Sundays at 10am-12pm

All classes will provide participants with the tools needed to build a set of guiding principles that is truly their own and which will stay with them for years to come. The class includes textual learning, group interaction, and cutting-edge multimedia presentations.

Merit Based Stipend:

Qualifying students can receive a merit based stipend of up to $600.00 upon completion of the course. We encourage students to use their stipend to further their Jewish leadership pursuits. Compensation will be awarded on a pro-rated scale based on attendance and participation. Students will be awarded funds at the Jewish Learning Institute Graduation. Each Student must attend 2 "In Service" sessions to qualify (Volunteering for Chabad). Excused absences will be allowed, but will be subject to deduction of stipend. Any student who misses more than 6 classes will no longer be eligible for any stipend monies. However, in a case where a stipend is not awarded, a student's hours can be counted toward community service hours.


This year we will be accepting a limited amount of applicants. You will be notified within 72 hours if you are accepted into this program.
