Thank you for applying to Federation CJA’s Passport to Jewish Life Fellowship- a groundbreaking community-wide initiative for professional development to support experiential educators.

The Passport to Jewish Life Fellowship is an 18-month training program, consisting of 3 seminars, a cohort-based Community of Practice, and regular organizational coaching for a 2-person team from each participating institution. The Fellowship will be delivered by M2: The Institute for Experiential Jewish Education.

The program will immerse a diverse cohort of educators in Montreal in the underlying theories and educational pedagogies of experiential education; as the program progresses, participants will process and deduce learnings from their experience in a supportive environment. Participants will learn from faculty, as well as have opportunities to interact closely with and challenge one-another. Each participant will ultimately walk away with enhanced learning, language and invaluable skills to apply to their own careers. The Fellowship will strengthen each participating institution in offering more effective educational programs.

The application below is an opportunity for us to get to know you on both a personal and professional level. We look forward to reading your responses and very much welcome your honesty and candor.
