• 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.

2024 Zeitler Fellowship

2024 Zeitler Fellowship


Deadline Extended! Applications are due by 11:59PM on April 11, 2024

The Zeitler Fellowship is a diverse cohort of young adults who are exploring their roles as participants and emerging leaders in their Jewish communities, and who are new to the NHC community. Zeitler Fellows participate in several sessions together during their time at Institute. These sessions include opportunities to reflect on building, sustaining, and participating in their Jewish communities both within and outside of the NHC. In addition, Fellows participate in courses and everything else the Summer Institute has to offer.

A core value of the NHC is that every teacher is a student and every student is a teacher. As such, Zeitler Fellows are encouraged to lead programs at Institute for the entire community. The Fellowship — and the Summer Institute as a whole — provides an opportunity to both gain from and give to the NHC community.

Zeitler Fellows will pay a total of $200 ($60 for dues and $140 dollars for registration). The Zeitler Fellowship is generously funded by Frances Turim Zeitler.

Applications are due by midnight on April 4, 2024.  For questions, please email zeitler@havurah.org.
