Summertime Learning

Lishma, a SoCA summer yeshiva program for the college-age-and-a-bit-older set still has some spots open for its 2007 cohort. It should be some great Torah, so if you’re interested, check the deets below:

LISHMA is an extraordinary Jewish learning experience– a 4-week, intensive summer yeshiva for young adult Jews (18-25) located on the site of beautiful Camp Ramah in California. Lishmaniks learn traditional Jewish prayer, study daily with renowned Talmud scholar from Bar Ilan University, Aaron Amit, engage in weekly social action projects, and hear lectures from prominent rabbis and scholars throughout the summer. Lishmaniks also enjoy the recreation facilities of Camp Ramah, including an Olympic sized pool, tennis and basketball courts, art, ceramics, hiking and more. Other highlights include a weekend camping trip to the Channel Islands, as well as ongoing spiritual mentoring with LISHMA Directors Lizzi Heydemann and Jordan Gerson, both students at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies. This summer’s dates are June 17-July 16, 2007.
