Welcome back List College students!
Today is the first day of classes at JTS, but the 2013-2014 participants in our Fellowship in Jewish Social Entrepreneurship are already hard at work. The 10 fellows moved back on campus early for an intensive day-long training before classes began – and many of us have already started at our internships.
We look forward to sharing our experiences with you throughout the year. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek into what we’ll be doing as fellows:
