    Genesis at Brandeis is a three-week pluralistic, academically focused Jewish learning and identity-building summer precollege program for exceptional high school students (ages 15-18). Students engage in college-level learning, informal Jewish experiences and joyful Shabbat celebrations while making lifelong friends and living on a college campus.

    Established in 1997 through a generous grant from Steven Spielberg's Righteous Persons Foundation, Genesis offers a three-week residential program session. This program gives outstanding teens the chance to connect with a vibrant peer group, engage in the rigorous study of an academic field through a Jewish lens, and understand what it means to build a diverse, international, pluralistic Jewish community. Genesis continues to this day in its tradition of excellence and innovation in Jewish education. Students can expect to gain expertise in their academic course, a deeper understanding of their Jewish identity and lasting friendships with Jewish students from around the world.
