Sinai Scholars Society

This semester, we once again have the Sinai Scholars Society  
on the SUNY New Paltz campus! 

Sinai Scholars is a society that was founded in 2005 with the goal of empowering a core of future Jewish leaders with theological literacy. The society provides funding to run a course on Judaism each semester at 45 campuses nationwide. The course is focused on examining the 10 commandments given to the people of Israel at Sinai from a modern, yet mystical, perspective. It provides members with the tools to analyze the ten commandments - the basic creed of Judaism - and derive from them the big ideas that drive Jewish religion, Jewish ethics and Jewish living in the modern world.

Each semester, 10 applicants are selected to participate in the course. The course consists of eight 2 hour sessions, an introductory session, a Shabbat experience, a Jewish life field trip and a graduation ceremony.


Applicants that complete the entire course are eligible for a stipend of up to $350 or a Free Trip to Israel with IsraeLinks.
