4. If you could describe your experience at Hadar in one word what would it be (feel free to elaborate beyond a single word)?
It was utterly transformative.
5. How does Hadar still play a role in your life?
Hadar provided a unique communal experience that changed the way I see my Jewish identity and exposed me to a new way of thinking about the purpose and promise of religious education. Not only has grappling with Jewish texts and interpretive methodology informed the way I approach legal thinking as a graduate student, it has also motivated me to become involved in the Jewish community at NYU, where I recently served as the president of our Jewish Law Student Association. Hadarniks are not only committed to living lives filled with Torah, they are also dedicated to one another, and I am continually amazed at how the friendships I made in that short summer have become such an important part of my life.
