The HUC-JIR Founders’ Fellowship is making an impact on campuses across North America.

Fellows are grouped in to chevrutot (study groups) based on their project idea. In this cohort, groups range from:
Beyond the projects themselves, Fellows report that being part of Founders’ Fellowship has a major impact on them, saying things like:
"The Fellowship has made me ask tough questions, not only about my project but about myself."
"I am walking away with a refreshed passion for Reform Judaism and confidence to take my project from an idea stage into reality. I am leaving with so many people who are amazing resources and I've created meaningful relationships with them."
"I feel a lot more confident in my project, largely because I feel that even if everything doesn't go 100% as I originally dreamed/planned, there are still many paths to get to my end goal. I didn't have that flexibility in my thinking prior to [the retreat] weekend."
