Shameless plug: The National Havurah Committee is the longest-running incubator of independent minyanim in the US. I attended their week-long Summer Institute as a young leader fellow in 2006 and it had a transformative impact on my Judaism. It offered me a community of tinkerers, serious thinkers, and playful explorers of Jewish texts, spirituality, and practice. Most of all, it promoted newcomers to leadership overnight — I co-chaired the following Summer Institute.
Over the years, they’ve expanded their fellowships into new teaching roles. Interested? Take a look below.
Are you an Artist? and/or Liturgist? and/or Pursuer of Social Justice?
