Effective altruism for jews
Apply now for the Spring 2024 Fellowship!
Effective altruism is a project that aims to find the best ways to help others, and put them into practice. It’s both a research field, which aims to identify the world’s most pressing problems and the best solutions to them, and a practical community that aims to use those findings to do good. The EA and Judaism Intro Fellowship is an 8-week virtual program you can do alongside school or work that explores the core ideas of effective altruism and their relation to Jewish tradition, texts, culture, and history.
The fellowship will explore questions such as:
It’s an opportunity to deepen your understanding of global issues and their relation to Jewish texts and tradition; increase the impact you achieve through your career, donations and other projects; and connect with other Jews pursuing high impact paths in a diverse range of fields.
In addition to providing a structured format for reading and discussion, we also connect fellows who are interested in particular areas of social impact with relevant people, resources, and opportunities to help them achieve the impact they are excited to achieve.
The fellowship is open to people of all Jewish backgrounds and does not adopt the perspective of any particular Jewish denomination or community. It will start the week of March 17th and last for 8 weeks. Each week, fellows will read ~2 hours of carefully curated texts and participate in a 60-minute small group discussion with other participants and a trained facilitator.
The deadline to apply is March 10th.
We look forward to reading your application!
