Meet our Fellows

“During the fellowship’s immersive seminars, I was transported to another world where I could think deeply and connect without any distractions. It was brilliant. By incorporating the knowledge I learned from M² into my work, I have vastly transformed it.”
Nina Faynberg
Senior Educators Cohort 5
Director of Teen Services and Leadership Development, Edith and Carl Marks, Jewish Community House of Bensonhurst
“M² gave me the opportunity to be part of a lively Beit Midrash where I could think critically about pedagogy and the Jewish tradition behind it, and actualize my research. M² gave me the space to explore, experiment, connect with others, and find my own voice.”
Ari Weiss
Jewish Pedagogies Research Fellowship, Cohort 1
Executive Director, Cornell Hillel
“To work closely with the M² team has allowed me to start to develop the foundations of my organization’s Jewish educational philosophy, which we can build upon for years to come. To be able to focus on this work in a cohort of people who are doing so as well is exactly what sets M² apart.”
Jessy Dressin
18X18 Executive Fellowship
Director of Education, Repair the World
“Every time M² shares a resource, I want to check it out because I know how worthwhile it will be. M² helped me put structure and a theoretical frame around my skills and knowledge, and ignited my interest in further research. By enabling me to explore current theories M² has helped me achieve multidirectional growth.”
Mariano Schlimovich

Executive Director, European Council of Jewish Communities (EUJC)
