alumnae opportunities

Alumnae maintain a lifelong connection with the Maharat community. Here are some of the opportunities open only to graduates of Maharat:

beloved cohort


Beloved and Maharat are launching a three-year cohort for Maharat alumnae starting in November 2022.  The cohort will provide holistic support for building and sustaining new communities, including: inspiring leaders (training, mentorship); supporting leaders (financial, organizational, operations); nourishing leaders (convening); expanding the definition of pulpit; and establishing transparent salary bands.


As a spiritual leader, you are eligible for the cohort if you are:

  • an alumna of Maharat

  • creating a Jewish space of sacred belonging

  • building a community/project in pre-development (ready to launch within 1-2 years) through 3 years post-launch

  • experienced in spiritual leadership (5+ years)
