The Shalom Hartman Institute’s Teen Fellowship is an extraordinary opportunity for Jewish high schoolers in grades 10-12 to cultivate their Jewish identities and worldviews. Participants study with preeminent Hartman Institute scholars, contemplate fundamental Jewish questions, and join a community of insightful and motivated peers and mentors from across North America. 

Through the Hartman Teen Fellowship, participants study new perspectives on Jewish identity, peoplehood, and values. Students grapple with pressing questions related to identity and belonging, their relationship to Israel, and important issues facing the Jewish people. Through critical thinking, understanding of Jewish ideas and values, and connection to Jewish peers and mentors, Fellows cultivate a desire for and capacity to lead meaningful Jewish lives.

Develop the capacity and the confidence to wrestle with questions that matter to teens, such as:

  • What does it mean to be a part of a global Jewish people?
  • What unites us and what divides us?
  • How should we, as young Jews, respond to the challenges we face in a polarized society?

The Shalom Hartman Teen Fellowship runs
from October – May (Orientation is held virtually in September),
and involves four exciting components:  

Community and Mentorship
Virtual Community Batei Midrash
