Hadar’s Manger Winter Learning Seminar (MWLS) is an opportunity for students and young adults to study in Hadar’s Beit Midrash and take part in an honest, dynamic, and multi-level exploration of Jewish texts with passionate teachers and committed peers.

Immerse yourself in a stimulating week of Torah study, Jewish music, prayer, shared meals, and conversation while connecting to an incredible network of peers who are excited about learning and are working to build bolder, more ambitious, and more meaningful Jewish lives.

This seminar is designed for students and young adults, ages 18-30, with a passion for Jewish texts and an openness to learning, sharing, and growing.


This Year's Theme

Between Praise and Protest: Approaches to God and Prayer

Throughout the millennia, Jewish prayer has been a conduit between humans and God. It contains and expresses the passions, emotions, ideas, and spiritual yearnings of people longing for a connection with the divine. Exploring prayer is a unique way to understand our ancestors' relationship with God and to probe our tradition for guidance in our own spiritual journeys. At Hadar’s Manger Winter Learning Seminar, we will uncover language for gratitude and anger, praise and protest, and the multitude of ways to imagine who God is.
