The Hevruta Partnership in Global Jewish Learning and Leadership, a collaborative project of the Shalom Hartman Institute and Hebrew College of Boston, is the first fully integrated and balanced gap-year program for American and Israeli student leaders from a diverse range of Jewish backgrounds and perspectives.
An unparalleled opportunity for pluralistic learning, this exciting and dynamic learning environment will address both Israeli and American cultures and contexts as compelling centers of contemporary Jewish life leadership and discovery.
Over the course of their 10-month experience, Hevruta participants will engage in rigorous intellectual pursuit and text study, while taking advantage of Jerusalem’s rich intellectual and spiritual resources. A three-week North American component will enable Hevruta participants to explore American Jewish identity in a global context in the goal of deepening the exchange across the diverse cohort of participants.
Hevruta Alumni will be engaged to bring their influential voices to shape the Jewish people’s most important conversations and to impact critical communal decisions.
