National Havurah Committee: a Week Long Opportunity this Summer
The National Havurah Committee (NHC) Summer Institute is a week-long, pluralistic retreat of grassroots Jewish learning and living. Among its 300 attendees are students, musicians, doctors, furniture makers, retirees, Jewish professionals, homemakers, teachers, young children, and activists, all committed to shaping the present, and future, of American Judaism. Last summer, the NHC held a program for college student leaders to engage in this dynamic community, with the focus of developing their davening and leadership skills. In addition to the classes, workshops, prayer options, and rich personal interactions available to all attendees, the cohort of student leaders participated in a series of sessions devoted to learning the skills that make Hillel communities succeed. We are poised to continue this program at the 2012 NHC Summer Institute. The dates of this year’s Institute are August 6-12, and the conference takes place at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire. We encourage schools to send two or more student leaders, so that they have peer support in implementing their new skills back on campus. If you are interested, please contact Rabbi Boraz and he will put you in touch with someone to get you more information,
