Advanced Torah Fellowship


The purpose of the MFJCÔÇÖs Advanced Torah Fellowship program is to support the highest level of intensive Torah study for those who have the potential to become a Torah scholar-leader in a community or Torah institution. In order to be eligible to apply for the Advanced Torah Fellowship, one must be a qualified scholar, with SÔÇÖmicha or 5 years of post-HS study of Talmud and Halacha and have passed an exam (e.g., Rabbanut SÔÇÖmicha exams) or the equivalent (e.g., a Yoetzet Halacha program graduate). During their Fellowship year, grant recipients are expected to pursue an intensive, rigorous program of Torah learning at a Kollel, Yeshiva or Midrasha combining study and intensive research. At the conclusion of their Fellowship, grant recipients are expected to prepare a paper for publication that demonstrates significant scholarship and the capacity to connect Torah to current social and cultural issues. Applications for the Advanced Torah Fellowship for the 2023-2024 academic year will open soon. Please submit your email address via email and you will be contacted when the intake form is available.
