“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
