Knowledge is power, and Jewish knowledge is power in the Jewish community. Hence, Fellows learn together to develop the skills to navigate the Jewish bookshelf, have ownership over Jewish texts and concepts both historical and current, and understand the process of textual interpretation.
From the start of the Fellowship through to December, Fellows meet on a weekly basis for a community learning program on critical issues facing the Jewish world.
Dorot Fellows invariably represent a wide range of Jewish and religious backgrounds, providing for a rich environment within which the DFI Learning Community grapples with multiple interpretations of foundational texts and ideas.
Fellows may not schedule individual commitments at any time on Thursdays throughout the Fellowship period or on Monday mornings during the first half of the year.
