How long is the program?
The program is 3-weeks long and will take place from 5 - 26th January 2020.
How much does the program cost?
The cost of the program is roughly $2,600 USD, plus flights.
Please note that this cost is dependant on the number of participants.
What will I be doing?
The program has three main components:
1. Jewish educational programming
The Jewish educational component involves seminars, presentations and interactive group-based discussions which will address key issues associated with Jewish philosophy and topics of contemporary significance, including the interaction of Jewish ethics, public policy, business and finance.
2. Leadership Training
In addition to the valuable internship placement, the program includes a seminar series bringing participants face-to-face with high-profile figures from the banking and finance world, politicians, policy-makers, Jewish educators and communal leaders.
Participants will be placed in a variety of companies as related to their individual areas of interest and study. Internships will take place for the duration of the program in working hours. It is important to note that participants are welcome to arrange their own placements (approved by the program's team), ensuring the organisation agrees to adhere to The Brownstone's program requirements.
What do we do on Shabbat?
The first Shabbat will be spent together in Long Island, the second Shabbat is free and the final Shabbat is spent together at the Brownstone. This is one of the highlights of the program as the students are given the opportunity to immerse themselves in NYC's various and diverse Jewish communities.
Can I fly to New York City before the program and stay on later?
You sure can! Travel arrangements are made individually, you just have to ensure you are in New York City for the full duration of the program.
What is my commitment pre and post program?
Participants are required to attend five pre and five post program sessions. We expect that as a participant of the program, you will be an ambassador of the Moriah community and upon your return, assist in driving young adult engagement initiatives within the broader community.
