We’ve already mentioned the National Havurah Committee‘s Summer Institute on Jewschool once or twice this year, but let’s make it a hat trick.
The Summer Institute is a week of learning and teaching with 300+ of your closest friends from across North America (and a few other places too). To quote BZ, “if a multigenerational Jewish community were inclusive of educated laypeople, respectful of individuals with or without families, and open to experimentation, would it be a place for 20-and-30-something Jews like [me/you/us]? Yes.”
And financial aid is available!
This year the National Havurah Committee‘s Summer Institute has a significant amount of financial aidavailable! We are committed to making the Institute affordable for people of all ages and backgrounds, and encourage people to apply regardless of need level, through reduced fees and travel grants.
But please apply soon – the deadline for the first round of scholarships and travel grants is May 1. After May 1, less aid will be available and assistance will be based on available funds. Click here for more information about financial aid.
In addition, our amazing Everett Fellowship program has a May 12 deadline for applications. Anyone ages 22-32 can apply for Everett Fellowships, which are for “young adults who have demonstrated their potential to be advocates for Jewish causes and who are actively engaged in defining their post-college participation in the Jewish community.” It includes free tuition and room and board. More information can be found here.
As always, you can find the full Institute brochure available for download on the website.
We encourage people to register as soon as possible to ensure a place in the courses of their choosing.
Can’t wait to see you in August!
