Yeshivat Hadar Summer Beit Midrash
Yeshivat Hadar’s Summer Beit Midrash is a unique opportunity for a highly committed group of young, Jewish students to live in a community that combines intellectual openness and curiosity with the personal and spiritual rigor of yeshiva life. Participating in immersive study at Hadar is an investment in your Jewish identity, one that will enrich and guide your Jewish life for decades to come. Yeshivat Hadar’s Summer Beit Midrash focuses on:
- Gaining the skills to independently approach the classic texts of Torah
- Developing a mature, intellectually rigorous approach to the fundamental questions of Jewish life
- Deep engagement with Jewish content, both practical and intellectual
- Spiritual and personal growth that comes from tefillah, Hesed, and shared communal life
Part of the power of the Summer Beit Midrash at Yeshivat Hadar is the integrated, holistic aspect of life and study here. Yeshivat Hadar students and faculty daven together, share meals, study together, visit the sick together, and sing together. Those activities are not independent - our learning takes on the personal and soulful tones of davening, and our commitment to Hesed informs conversations within the Yeshiva’s walls. Being a member of the Yeshivat Hadar community is not just about your time inside the Beit Midrash; it is a way of life for the summer.
Through committing to eight weeks of learning in Yeshivat Hadar’s Summer Beit Midrash, you join an effort to foster a new model of Jewish community - one that will welcome you as a colleague and friend in the fullest ways of living out a Jewish life. Over the past decade, hundreds of students have studied at Yeshivat Hadar, and are now pursuing a wide range of careers and life paths, while contributing to the vibrancy of their Jewish communities and shaping the landscape of the next generation of Jewish life.
