What is the ENGAJ Fellowship?
***Applications are now closed for the cohort beginning in October, 2022***
If you have ever looked at your Jewish community and wanted to:
-Get more involved
-Share a really cool idea for a community event
-Learn and discover more about your own identity and relationship with Judaism
Then the ENGAJ fellowship is ready to help empower and aid you in reaching those goals!
The ENGAJ fellowship is a six-month program with a focus on leadership development, Jewish peoplehood, Jewish learning, community engagement and individual growth. Fellows learn from Jewish leaders, educators, local organizations and other mentors, as well as plan meaningful gatherings for like-minded peers. We will give you the resources to help realize your cool ideas for Jewish programming and guidance on how to implement them successfully. We welcome Jews of all identities and walks of life to apply!
The fellowship will meet approximately every three weeks on a Sunday, starting in October 2022 with opportunities for fellows to take charge and lead/aid community events for Jewish young adults. The ENGAJ fellows will have access to unique workshops and sessions led by leaders in the Jewish community, as well as a FREE membership to the state-of-the-art fitness and wellness facilities at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto for the duration of the Fellowship. This includes full access to the gym, sauna, steam room, swimming pools and more.
One thing to note is that the speakers and format of the fellowship have changed since pre-Covid, so previous fellows are welcome to apply and join us again!
