This past week, Jewish Fellowships International hosted its seventh annual winter-break fellowship for university students from University of Central Florida and Florida International University. The students were given a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Led by Rabbi Finman, the participants spent the week studying at Yeshiva Sh’or Yoshuv, where they learned about the fundamentals of Judaism. Their neshamos were alive, inspired, and uplifted from the deep connection they formed during their stay in the Far Rockaway/Five Towns community. The staff at Jewish Fellowships would like to thank Yeshiva Sh’or Yoshuv for hosting the learning and the community for hosting Shabbos meals and chavrusa learning sessions.

As a direct result of the fellowship, four university students committed to return to study in yeshiva. Three have already enrolled in Yeshiva Sh’or Yoshuv and one has committed to return for two months this summer!

To host a Shabbos meal or volunteer for chavrusa learning with university fellowship participants, please contact Rabbi Elisha Finman at 718-614-7649,, or v
