Marla Bennett (z”l) Fellows

In 2009, inspired by Marla’s love of Jewish learning, Israel and Jewish life at Cal, friends and family started the Marla Bennett Scholarship Fund, which supports the Marla Bennett Fellowship. The Marla Bennett Fellowship is given to one Berkeley student each year to spend the summer learning at the Pardes Institute. The Fellowship allows students to advance their own Jewish learning and develop their relationship with Israel. Upon their return the fellows organize ways to bring Marla’s memory and their experience back to campus.  To learn more about the Fellowship or to apply, click here.

In August of 2021, 8 of the 11 Marla Bennett Fellows gathered together on Zoom to reflect on their experience as a fellow.  Below is a short video of this conversation.
