Fellowship Details

We’re excited to announce that we will be running another round of the EA and Judaism Intro Fellowship this July!

The summer fellowship will be a 4-week virtual program you can do alongside school or work that explores the core ideas of effective altruism and their relationship to Jewish tradition, texts, culture, and history.

It will explore questions such as:

  • What do Jewish texts and tradition have to say about our obligations to the global poor, animals, and future generations?
  • How should we balance concern for Jewish priorities vs. global priorities?
  • How much better are the best options to do good?
  • What can we do to most effectively address pressing global problems like climate change, pandemics, and risks posed by emerging technologies?

For any questions, reach out to us at Shalom@eaforjews.org or schedule a 1-1 with Hillel, our Director.

The deadline to apply is Sunday, June 25th.

Learn more and apply at: https://eaforjews.org/fellowship!

Ways you can help 

(1) Spread the word to anyone you know who might be interested! 

Last fellowship, we had over 60 participants and almost everyone who joined heard about it from a direct message from someone they knew! Fellows do not need to be religious or have any prior background with effective altruism to enjoy the program. You can share the fellowship page on our website, our social media posts, and/or the program syllabus with anyone who might be interested. 

(2) Apply to facilitate 

We are looking for facilitators who can help lead a cohort of fellows toward a good exchange of ideas. You can lead a group either in person within your own community or online (application here). 

(3) Help connect us with a Jewish organization 

If you have a connection with a Jewish organization that can help promote our fellowship (such as your synagogue, campus Hillel, study program, etc.) let us know at Shalom@eaforjews.org.
