    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.

Shuk Guidelines

The Shuk is an great opportunity for Institute participants sell their wares and exhibit information and resources from their favorite organizations or projects. This is both a wonderful way for us to share our work with each other and a great fundraiser for the National Havurah Committee.  The shuk will take place at Hawk Hall on the first floor and its patio.

You must contact the Shuk Coordinator at shuk@havurah.org if you would like to reserve a table at the shuk.



  1. You must be willing to schlep your own goods to and from the Shuk.  No items can be left at the table after Shuk is closed.
  2. Spots/Tables inside Hawk Hall are first come, first serve.  All other tables will be on the patio.
  3. If you want to be a vendor, you must register beforehand.
