Registration Open: Mechon Hadar Summer Institute for Jewish Professionals

Mechon Hadar is holding a four-day Summer Institute geared toward Jewish professionals! The seminar, from June 25-29, is intended to draw an audience from a variety of backgrounds looking to spend time deepening their connection to Jewish learning around relevant and substantive issues. This summer we will focus on themes of social justice.

In addition to the main program, we also offer specialty tracks for

  • Hillel Professionals

The goals of our learning together include:

  • Helping people to encounter each other through deep text learning.
  • Facilitating discussions around how to take back to your workplace “pocket Torah” that will be useful in real-life work scenarios with colleagues, lay leaders, volunteers and your constituents.
  • Broadening our own knowledge and understanding of Jewish learning.

This seminar is intended for people working in Jewish professional organizations looking to deepen their connection to their work through Jewish text. Core faculty to include: R. Avital Hochstein and R. Elie Kaunfer.
