Through Jewish Learning Scholarships, the Yesod Centre for Jewish Community Professional Development (Yesod Centre) will support Jewish community professionals, educators and rabbis in Europe to access high level intensive summer Jewish study programs in 2018. You will expand your Jewish knowledge and skills in engaging with Jewish texts and take this back home with you to your work of Jewish educational programming in European communities.^ Back to top
Yesod will support a limited number of selected applicants with funds to cover tuition for one study session (approximately 2 weeks) and return flights to Israel if requested. The scholarship will be paid directly to the educational institute where the course of study will take place and flights will be booked through Yesod. Money will not be received directly by the applicant.
Yesod will not cover housing and other living costs. They will need to be met by a combination of the applicant, your employer and any other sources of funding you obtain.
During your studies, you will be required to participate in a small number of Yesod student gatherings, which will be an opportunity to connect with other European Jewish community professionals, educators and rabbis.
Within 30 days of completing the study program you will be required to submit a short online report describing the course of study, key lessons learned, how this has impacted you directly and plans to use your new learning in your work.
Yesod may request that scholarship recipients support other Yesod alumni with one-to-one mentoring, to produce a webinar or podcast, or to teach at a Yesod seminar. This would be discussed with recipients to fit in with your ongoing community roles.^ Back to top
