Setting the standard in rabbinic education

Meorot - Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, Setting the standard in rabbinic education



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 important leadership positions in the Jewish community.

The theme of all Meorot Programs for the 2017-2018 academic year is “Confrontation and Collaboration: Orthodoxy’s Complicated Relationship with Modernity.”


The Meorot Fellowship is open to current undergraduate students as well as recent college graduates. Fellows receive a generous stipend upon completing the program, along with weekly dinners and all program materials.
