Olami Inspire Fellowship

Get Paid to Learn!

Olami Inspire Fellowship (formerly known as the Maimonides Fellowship) is a ten-week Jewish leadership and learning program that brings Judaism alive in a way you have never experienced before. Together with a small, carefully selected group of your fellow Michigan students, you will spend the next ten weeks learning, leading, and living Judaism like never before. Specifically, Inspire classes cover diverse leadership topics, give a brief understanding of the Torah and provide practical applications of leadership in society. Rabbi Fully and Jewish leaders from various fields teach the classes on weekly basis. Students also have the ability to enjoy inspiring and stimulating lectures and classes, two Shabbatons with the Detroit Jewish community (adjustments will be made for covid-19), and much more. By the end of the ten week program, students will not only gain a new perspective of the world but of their own life and self, while at the same time becoming more familiar with their roots. Plus, you’ll receive a stipend upon completion.

Fall Semester 2020 registration is now open.

Welcome to the New JRC

We shape our buildings, thereafter the building shapes us ~ Winston Churchill

Ask any JRC regular and they’ll tell you: a huge part of what make the JRC special is our unique building. The open floor plan that allows for easy conversations, the coffee bar and slushy machine by the front door, or the cozy couches in library; they all add to the JRC’s motto – “Your Jewish HOME away from home.”

In 2017 we set out to solve a wonderful problem — more students than we have space for! On any given Friday night the crowd filling the building was beyond capacity, and we were serving them from a tiny kitchen. Check out the pictures of our new space! We’ve almost doubled capacity, have a functional, beautiful kitchen, while retaining the same warmth which characterizes our space. We looking forward to building memories with you in this wonderful new space.

The Jewish Resource Center’s mission is to provide an outlet for students looking to become more involved in Judaism.
