Is This Course for Me?

Hear what these students have to say!

How do I know that this course is for me before applying for it?

If you enjoy fun and lively conversations, if you want to challenge the status quo. If you want to discover how Judaism is relevant and forward-thinking or have questions about Judaism that are important to discuss. Then join the club, Sinai Scholars is for you!

This learning experience is different from any class you have ever attended. Sinai Scholars is not a series of lectures; it is a series of interactive discussions. It is not a repeat of what you experienced in Hebrew school; it is fun, stimulating, deep, and relevant. It is not a time to listen; it’s a time to question. It is not geared to tell you what to think; it provides an opportunity to explore Judaism’s rich heritage at your own pace with you in the driver’s seat.

When you apply, you will be asked a number of questions to help Sinai Scholars Head Office to determine if this course is for you. The office will accept only those students whom they think are suitable based on their application responses. (Give yourself up to 30 minutes to complete the online registration).

Due to limited spaces available, we will give priority to students in the 2nd and 3rd year at university. We encourage Freshers to get in touch anyway, and we will be happy to offer spaces to Freshers if they are available

Consider this; If you are Jewish, are ready to think out of the box, enjoy group discussions and good food and are willing to give it 2 hours a week for 8 weeks this term and would appreciate a $350 stipend. THIS IS FOR YOU!

Students Reflect


“What does Judaism mean to me? 3 months ago my answer was very different than what it is today. Sinai Scholars has helped me shape my understanding and my beliefs about what it means to be Jewish in the modern world.”

“I have gained a lot from my experience on the Sinai Scholars Course, discovering a deeper meaning in my religion and culture as well as developing beliefs I already held from my upbringing.”

“Judaism did not play a major role in my childhood, so I often did not engage with Jewish courses because I was worried how my lack of knowledge compared to other students. This worry was unfounded because at Sinai Scholars everything was explained clearly and simply without making assumptions about what was already known.”

“The programme had a great impact on me. Firstly, it was such a wonderful opportunity to engage with Judaism whilst at university - discussing Jewish ideas and meeting other Jewish people; I hadn’t had an opportunity like that before. Alongside this, it was very interesting engaging with each other and hearing different peoples ideas on similar topics.”

“The programme encouraged me to have a closer connection to my Judaism at university and allowed me to get to know other Jewish people a lot better which made my time at university feel more wholesome.”
