    Registration deadline: June 18th

    This year’s theme of עִיר מִקְלָט “Ir Miklat: City of Refuge” can be found in a small corner of parshat Matot-Masei (Numbers 30:2 - 36:13). It epitomizes how we want this year’s institute to feel: a space where both the individual and the community at the heart of the Havurah ethos can come together in a safe space to create something meaningful, where our connections are welcoming and inclusive, fun and exciting, relaxing and energizing, and insightful and spiritually significant for our diverse community of participants.

    The Core Team envisions Institute as our City of Refuge--a place that’s safe--this year more than ever. What is it YOU need refuge from? We welcome you to join us at Pearlstone Center for sanctuary and refuge, to renew and refresh, and to play, rest, create and learn with us! Summer Institute will take place july 29-August 4, 2024.

2023 Call for Liturgist in Residence

Applications are open for the Liturgist in Residence at the 2023 Summer Institute.We especially welcome applications that share your process of creating new prayers, reinterpreting prayers,  or designing new rituals through example.  Please offer at least one session on “how you do what you do” so that others may learn from you. We are not looking for programs that teach traditional liturgical skills, nusach or service leading methods. While teaching, learning, singing, or matching original, or alternative melodies for prayers is appropriate, that should not be the sole focus of the Liturgist-in-Residence workshops and activities. 

We encourage Jews of Color and marginalized communities whose original liturgy reflects their challenges, dreams, interpretations, and variations of Jewish prayers to apply.  The Liturgist-in-Residence will be a be a catalyst to create and share contemporary prayer experiences and/or rituals that embrace, reflect, and celebrate the NHC community’s racial, religious, and social diversity.
