The Einayich Yonim fellowship is an 18-month experience for Jewish high school sophomores and juniors with a strong interest in Jewish spirituality, concern for the environment, a background in Jewish learning and a commitment to personal growth. Through a program of study, mentorship, and action, the fellowship provides students the opportunity to delve into Jewish ethical ecology, to build a safe and supportive community of spiritually connected young people, to nurture self-reflection and personal growth, to foster intergenerational mentor relationships, and to help young people see the profound connection between their Jewish heritage and their responsibility for the well-being of all life on Earth.
“The World is Hurting. It needs young people who can see in a different way. Who can look with marvel at the delicate systems of creation. Who feel a sense of holy responsibility for the Earth. And inspire each other towards real and internalized change.”
