What is Summer Institute?

Institute is Going Online July 25- August 8, 2021!

For some 40 years, 300 plus people have gathered for a week every summer to learn, teach, daven, sing, and be in Jewish community together.

This year, as with so many institutions since Covid-19, we will not be meeting in person.

We will be meeting virtually and invite you to join friends and friends-to-be of all ages and backgrounds to come to the ​National Havurah Committee ​Summer Online Institute, where every teacher is a student and every student is a teacher. Our theme this year is

אֵיזֶהוּ חָכָם, הַלּוֹמֵד מִכָּל אָדָם
“Who is wise? One who learns from every person”

To offer flexibility given these strange times, the Institute will be spread out over two weeks. Four-session classes (TBA) will be offered twice a week, with both morning and evening options. Daily workshops will be available as well as all kinds of other programming including daily davening, community-wide learning, singing, and other options. We will have opportunities to share meals and hangout spaces together online as well.

The second week will have a higher concentration of non-course programming, including Friday afternoon/evening Shabbat programming and davenning.

Because these times are unprecedented, we are still finalizing the structure of the two-week program, but a sample day will look like this- Sample day schedule.
