Timbrel Artist-in-Residence

Timbrel Artist-in-Residence

Each year, the National Havurah Committee invites artists to teach and share their talents at the Summer Institute. Our community has enjoyed the contributions of artists of a great variety of disciplines, forms and styles.

The Timbrel Fund generously sponsors these artists. The first years of the program were generously funded by the Rita Poretsky Foundation.
