500 students have participated in EMET’s amazing fellowship program to date! Now it’s your turn!

Emet's flagship learning program, the Emet Leaders Fellowship, is a twelve-week study program featuring small-group learning with a dedicated mentor. Our Fellowship motto is: If you want to represent the Jewish people, you must know what the Jewish people represent. The Emet fellowship program offers you this crucial background. Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to explore Judaism from the inside out by learning with one of our outstanding rabbis and teachers.


You will find Emet's Shabbatons, an integral part of our program, to be exactly what you are looking for: a beautiful blend of intellectual stimulation and emotional inspiration. Students who successfully complete the program have the opportunity to participate in Emets Israel experiences during the summer and college mid-winter breaks. The Emet Fellowships meets each week at Queens College, St. Johns University, Long Island University, Hunter College, Baruch College and off-campus at the Beit Gavriel Community Center, located in the heart of Forest Hills.

Student Testimonials

Albina K., Emet Fellowship Scholar, St. Johns University Since I began this fellowship program, I have been transformed into a completely different person. I am so much more positive about life and Judaism.

Sergey K., Emet Fellowship Scholar, St. Johns University In order to find out where you're going, you need to know where you're from. These past several weeks I discovered my roots. Emet has provided a great opportunity for me to grow as a fellow Jew. Throughout this program I have discovered the most essential principles of Judaism, principles such as always giving people the benefit of the doubt, the importance of mitzvot in one's life, and most importantly preserving the holy day of Shabbat.

Zina B., Emet Fellowship Scholar, NYU Graduate School Thank you for the opportunity, for allowing me to take my first baby step to sweetness and creating the desire to search for the deeper meaning of the truth and the true way of living life.

Adina P., Emet Fellowship Scholar, Queensborough Community College The trip totally changed my life and locked in everything that I learned at Emet.

Andrea Z., Emet Fellowship Scholar, Queens College The Emet Leaders Fellowship Israel trip was the most amazing experience I have ever encountered. I feel like I learned so much, not only about Judaism, but about myself as well as others. The rabbis had a genuine interest in each individual, which I found very special. The lectures and speakers were incredible. The topics really made me think, and expanded my mind. The amount of learning was just right. Not too much, and not too little. It was perfect, and gave us enough time to explore and enjoy Israel. It felt like such a pleasure to be in such a wonderful environment. I felt blessed. I have never felt this happy and whole in my life. I felt like every day I was growing more and more as an individual. I felt like I was living a dream. Just when I thought I was having the best day ever, the next day took my breath away even more. It was a highly positive experience for me. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I have memories of a lifetime that nobody can take away from me. This trip was powerful, inspirational, and I cherished every moment.
