This September, 11th and 12th grade students can participate in a virtual learning environment with their peers throughout North America along with an in-person kallah experience, allowing URJ congregations the ability to collaborate and share resources developed in collaboration with Gratz College, a pioneer in online Jewish education. Registration is now open.


Students may participate through their congregation or individually.


Tuition: $750, includes one on-line course per semester and a three-day kallah.


Kallot will be offered November 4th-6th at Jacobs Camp in Mississippi and March 23rd-25th at Olin Sang Ruby Union Institute in Wisconsin. Students may select either retreat.


Available classes beginning in September 2011 include:

  • Israel today - which will include sessions on campus advocacy lead by the Religious Action Center
  • Kabbalah
  • Reform Judaism
  • Hebrew
  • Jewish Humor
  • Why the Jews? (Anti-Semitism) – for College Credit

Placement in classes will be on a first-come, first-placed basis. Classes will not have more than 15 students per section and must have a minimum of 5 students.
