What is Maimonides?
It’s a semester-long program that offers Jewish students like you the core knowledge you need to be an educated and inspired Jew in today’s world.
We convene one night a week (classes this semester will be on Mondays starting January 22th) for 10 weeks to engage in discussions with leaders in Jewish thought, business, philanthropy and industry, acquiring the greatest tool you need to stand out as a Jewish leader – knowledge.
Each week comprises of two sessions, such as:
Introduction to Jewish Knowledge: Jewish history, crash course in Jewish knowledge, road map to Jewish learning.
Introduction to Jewish philosophy: The Jewish approach to God and the purpose of our existence, free will, body and soul.
Contemporary Jewish Issues: Men and women, love, relationships, suffering, happiness, Israel, modern ethical dilemmas.
The Foundations of Jewish Leadership: Perfecting the world, character development, measuring success.
The Fellowship includes 2 Shabbat getaways in the Southfield/Detroit area, (dates TBA).
Students who complete the program receive a $400 stipend!
Maimonides encourages an open and comfortable environment where students of all backgrounds are able to question, challenge and debate the ideas that are discussed throughout the sessions. No prior background is required to apply.
