Sinai Scholars. Lifetime Leaders.
It all starts with a selective group of motivated college students. Add a dash of schmooze, a smidgen of self-discovery and a cool curriculum of Judaic classes taught by world-class educators. Bam! You’re among the next generation of passionate, informed Jewish leaders on campus and in your community. Coursework lasts eight weeks, but fellowship—and its benefits—last for life.

Benefits & Requirements
Students who commit to Sinai Scholars Society find it’s challenging, yet rewarding. Members gain lifetime access to an ever-expanding network of fellow students, new friends and Jewish leaders from across the country. Members are also privy to unique events on campus and within the greater Jewish community. Additionally, a stipend is awarded to those who successfully fulfill the requirements. These include:
Attendance at all eight two-hour classes
Participation in at least three events including a Shabbat experience, a class retreat and a closing gala
Writing a one-page reaction paper about your experience in Sinai Scholars and how it has changed or developed your perspective on Jewish living
Writing a five-page (minimum) research paper on a topic presented in the course material
Am I Worthy?
Since there are limited spaces available, membership favors those who are most interested and motivated to complete the program. It doesn’t matter how observant you are or how much you know about Judaism, just that you want to learn and grow.
How to Apply
In addition to filling out an application, the process includes an interview with a course instructor. Once accepted into the program (Mazel Tov!), you’ll attend an orientation session to get prepped.
