For almost three decades, the National Havurah Committee has been convening Summer Institutes to catalyze grassroots Jewish life across North America.

This quilt will be raffled off at next week’s Institute and go to one lucky winner, but you don’t have to be present at Institute to enter and win. You can buy raffle tickets online until Wednesday, August 8, at midnight. Buy one, buy two, buy fifty, and take home a piece of artwork that encapsulates several decades of independent Jewish innovation.
