• 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.

Request a Grant

Here’s some information on this year’s pricing and sliding scale. If you need additional help, the grants committee can offer further discounts. This year, payment is required in order to complete the registration form, so if you’re applying for a grant you’ll need to do so before you register. To apply for a grant, complete the grant request and submit it by April 10*. Applications received by April 10 will be processed before registration opens for everyone. Those who apply by April 10 will have the best chance to get their first-choice courses. Questions? Write to grants@nhc.org.

*Grant requests can be considered after that date, until June 7th.

The National Havurah Committee has operated with very little income during the Covid years. NHC has survived these years of challenge; however, the grants policy adopted in 2007 is tempered at present because of the drain on our resources since 2020. The former grants policy assured that no one will be denied attendance at an Institute for financial reasons. We will return to that policy when it is fiscally responsible to do so. All donations to NHC will help us get there.
