MAIMONIDES FELLOWSHIPS

MAIMONIDES 1 & 2:

Maimonides is the premier on-campus Jewish educational initiative. With thousands of students across the world graduating each year, participants of this program join a worldwide network of Jewish college students who are growing in their knowledge of Jewish wisdom and leadership tools. Maimonides is offered in both beginner and advanced levels, and consists of weekly sessions on campus as well as two off-campus immersive Shabbaton experiences. During the course of the semester students complete 25 hours of in class study on a wide array of topics led by both their local Aish couples as well as world class visiting lecturers. Students who successfully complete the Maimonides fellowship are eligible for subsidies to various trips offered by Aish and our affiliate programs.

Maimonides Fellowship is run in partnership with Olami Worldwide, an international movement of over 300 organizations worldwide, striving toward a vibrant, engaged and knowledgeable Jewish tomorrow.
