The UAlbanyJX Aish Leadership Fellowship

The UAlbanyJX offers a fellowship which comes with a financial stipend. Our flagship program is one of many such initiatives taking place around the country. It offers students a comprehensive immersion in Jewish learning and living through classes, discussion, field trips and social networking which take place during one entire semester. The financial stipend available through this program means that you can earn up to $500 for the semester. Space in this program is extremely limited. Apply now if you're interested in participating this spring!

The Chavrusah Study Partner Initiative

For 30 minutes each week, participate in a one-on-one learning session with either Rabbi C or Rabbi Dov. Pick the Jewish topic of your choice and the UAlbanyJX rabbis will show you how to investigate and analyze the topic using techniques developed by the greatest Jewish sages of history.

Trips and Retreats

Want to see the world? UAlbanyJX students are transported to major world cities across the United States, and overseas during each major school break. Closer to home, we offer students a rich and varied schedule of retreats, Shabbat programs and other special events.
