    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.

Yah Ribon and the Book of Daniel

with Aliza Arzt
Monday, February, 22: 8:00 ET

(Event has been moved to 2/22)

Does this Shabbat Zemer (song) and the book of Daniel have anything in common besides the fact that they are both written in Aramaic?  It turns out that they have a lot in common, as the first half of the Book of Daniel is mapped on to Yah Ribon to give the song much greater depth than one could imagine.  Find out how this works, and learn a little Aramaic while you’re at it.  I will make this class accessible to all, but the more Hebrew (not to mention Aramaic) you know, the more you’ll get out of it.

Aliza Arzt is a longtime member of Havurat Shalom in Somerville, MA.  She has been spending less time at her job as a home care speech therapist and more time going on Hebrew, Aramaic and Arabic text and language adventures.
