    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.

What is Summer Institute (2020)?

WHAT IS SUMMER INSTITUTE?

For some 40 years, 300 plus people have gathered for a week every summer to learn, teach, daven, sing, and be in Jewish community together.

This year, as with so many institutions since Covid-19, we will not be meeting in person.

We will be meeting virtually and invite you to join friends and friends-to-be of all ages and backgrounds to come to the ​National Havurah Committee ​Summer Online Institute, where every teacher is a student and every student is a teacher. Our theme this year is ”El na refa na lah” or “Please G!d, heal her.”

To offer flexibility given these strange times, the Institute will be spread out over two weeks. Four-session classes will be offered twice a week, with both morning and evening options. Daily workshops will be available as well as all kinds of other programming including daily davening, community-wide learning, singing, and other options. We will have opportunities to share meals and hangout spaces together online as well.  

The second week will have a higher concentration of non-course programming, including Tisha B’Av and Friday afternoon/evening Shabbat programming and davenning both before and during the time of chag.

Because these times are unprecedented, we are still finalizing the structure of the two-week program, but a sample day will look like this- Sample day schedule.
