small and mighty
These are campuses with smaller Jewish communities with less religious infrastructure. Yavneh fellows on these campuses focus on building religious community, infrastructure and a vibrant Jewish life.
Campuses with an OU/JLIC program are generally larger Jewish communities with a more developed religious infrastructure. Yavneh fellows on these campuses serve as leaders in their religious communities and share Jewish life with the broader Jewish community.
Yavneh fellows at YU/Stern have a number of leadership options and opportunities: building Jewish life on their campus and sharing Jewish life with peers on other campuses.
