The Drisha’s Arts Fellowship Program aims to revitalize the Jewish community by producing Jewishly knowledgeable artists. Women who are creative writers, visual artists, musicians, and performers are invited to apply. Drisha encourages the Arts Fellows to integrate their work with their Jewish learning and experience.

Arts Fellows who learn full time at Drisha receive a tuition waiver and may apply for a stipend. Arts Fellows who learn part time receive a tuition waiver and may receive a financial award at the end of their year of learning.

Artists come from a range of diverse backgrounds in Jewish learning and have the opportunity to select a group of classes appropriate to their level. Some artists take skill-based classes in Biblical Hebrew and Bible in our Yesodot Skill-Building program. Those with a more extensive background in learning may join our Beit Midrash or Scholars Circle programs and study Talmud and halakha as well as Bible. Click here to learn more about these programs.

In addition to committing to a select group of regular Drisha classes, all of the arts fellows attend a dynamic text class once a week designed to enrich their work and deepen their relationship with the Torah. This class also gives fellows the opportunity to spend time in the beit midrash (library) doing research for independent projects. Open only to Arts Fellows, this class serves to foster a strong bond among them.

Arts fellows meet at “salons” every week to share and discuss their work. Arts Fellows also present their work to the Drisha community throughout the year, and perform, read, or showcase their work at an event that takes place in June. Collaborations are encouraged.

For more information about applying to or supporting the program, please contact Lori Leifer, Arts Fellowship Coordinator.
