Since 2005, MEOR has inspired thousands of the most promising Jewish students on leading U.S. college campuses and effectively engaged them in the discovery of their own heritage and identity. MEOR programming is provided on both private and public universities that are distinguished by their academic excellence and/or a sizable Jewish population.
What began as a Jewish mentorship experiment on a single university campus has quickly grown into a masterwork of Jewish engagement operating on 20 prominent college campuses across the country and beyond.
Launched in 2005, MEOR’s unique brand of Jewish leadership training, sophisticated text-based study and experiential education programming highlights the importance of Jewish values, identity and community. In over fifteen years, MEOR has impacted more than 18,000 undergraduate students, encouraging them to connect with Judaism on their own terms and in their own time.
In 2016, MEOR established post-university programming to ensure that its alumni would have a familial Jewish framework for sustained growth as young professionals.
Now in its second decade, MEOR continues to ignite the Jewish flame within a new generation of young Jewish leaders who are hungry for community, continuity and connectivity.
