Learning for the Heart and Mind
July 16-20, 2017
JOIN US for a stimulating week of study at Mechon Hadar where we will spend the mornings learning about Jewish distinctiveness in a multicultural world and the afternoons exploring deep issues in our lives as Jews through the lens of Torah.
CONNECT with an incredible network of Jews, working together to build bolder, more ambitious, and more meaningful Jewish lives.
LEARN with Hadar faculty, including: Rabbi Shai Held, Rabbi Ethan Tucker, Rabbi Elie Kaunfer, Dena Weiss, Rabbi Jason Rubenstein, and Rabbi Aviva Richman
- What does Jewish identity mean in a postmodern world of freedom and diversity?
- How do boundaries around Jewishness create, strengthen, and complicate our relationships to Jews, Judaism, and others?
- And how can Judaism intersect with other charged distinctions of race, religion, and politics?
Mechon Hadar, meeting in the West End Synagogue, 190 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10023.

What Past Executive Seminar Participants Say
"I love studying Jewish classical texts, and this week was in a class by itself. The historical perspective that was presented in almost all of the talks, the social background of the texts, was outstanding... But the jewel in the crown is the faculty itself, their mastery of the material, their love of teaching, and their warmth and affection for the learners. They model Torah shel Chesed."
"I can't wait to get back to studying with you at Mechon Hadar in the Fall and Winter."
"Learning was fabulous as always. I get more optimistic about the future feeling the energy in the room as young and old learn together. Everyone is so respectful of each other and eager to learn."
