"Aseh l'cha rav uk'neh l'cha chaver" // "Make for yourself a teacher and acquire for yourself a friend" (Pirkei Avot 1:6).   

During the summer experience, this is the first text Bronfman Fellows study.  Its emphasis on the relationships built through study and engagement is one we uphold throughout the fellowship.

The Bronfman Fellowship believes in a leadership rooted in the wisdom of Jewish text and is energized by the joy of Jewish learning.  We cultivate relationships through partnership in learning (chevruta) and the multivocality of the house of study (beit midrash). This commitment to learning reenforces our pluralistic value of respectful disagreement, and is a cornerstone of our fellowship and alumni programming.

We're excited to share some of our favorite learning resources here.
