A Transformative Summer Experience

They may not yet have a plan for educating their children (see "Who will teach the kids of Hadar?"), but boy, they sure have adult education in hand! Hadar has just announced that they are opening an 8-week long, full-time Yeshiva program this coming summer (June 3 - July 27, 2007). The program will offer 15 fellows:
"an intensive program in the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side . . . Yeshivat Hadar will combine traditional text study, egalitarian prayer and social action with a special focus on personal religious growth. Yeshivat Hadar will create a community of learning which will include seminars, havruta (paired learning), and individualized projects. Students will complete the program equipped with greater textual competence and broader knowledge of the Jewish tradition as a whole. Students will commit to bringing lessons from their summer experience to their hometown community.

"In recognition of the intense time and energy commitment required by the fellowship, Yeshivat Hadar is pleased to offer a generous stipend, intended to cover the cost of tuition and living expenses. For more information (including student qualifications and a tentative schedule with course descriptions), and for the full application, please visit For any questions, feel free to email us at"
