Meorot - Chovevei Torah, Setting the standard in rabbinic leadership


What is the Meorot Fellowship?

The Meorot Fellowship, in existence for approximately twenty years, is committed to developing future Modern Orthodox spiritual and lay leaders – both men and women – through engaging college and graduate students in an environment of serious learning and honest discourse.

The fellowship devotes one evening per week for a period of three to six weeks to exploring the challenges and opportunities that modernity presents to Judaism and the Jewish people. Sessions consist of presentations given by leading academics, communal leaders, and rabbis followed by an open discussion, placing great emphasis on respect and tolerance as the cornerstones for healthy debate.

We are proud of our Meorot alumni, many of whom have gone on to serve in the rabbinate and in other important leadership positions in the Jewish community.


The Meorot Fellowship is open to current undergraduate students as well as recent college graduates. Fellows receive program materials, dinner and access to leading Modern Orthodox thinkers from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, Maharat, and beyond. 

Where and When?

As of April 2020, all Meorot sessions will take place via Zoom and are no longer campus-specific; all college students and recent graduates are welcome. Details below:
