Philadelphia Campus Learning Cohort
Join college students from across Philadelphia to build community, discuss new ideas, and engage with Jewish text.
Guided by Rabbi Micha’el Rosenberg, we’ll explore “God Talk for Adults.” Who is God? Is belief in God an essential component of Jewish life? What is, could be, or should be, our relationship with God? We'll spend six weeks learning a wide variety of texts--biblical, Rabbinic, Hasidic, and contemporary--and having a conversation about God that goes beyond childhood platitudes.
Hadar is committed to Torah that is uncompromisingly honest, spiritually meaningful, and socially responsible. We read both ancient and modern texts carefully, discussing possibilities, and exploring how the text may be relevant to contemporary situations. Learn with each other and Hadar as we explore our textual heritage for meaning and purpose.
Fellows will meet in-person 6 times over the course of the spring semester for dinner, learning, and community building. Our first session will focus on building relationships between students and give an introduction to our semester together. All sources will be provided the original language and English translation.
Students will receive a $200 stipend upon completion of the cohort.
