Date and Time

Join our standing class for Rabbis, every other Monday at 12:00 PM.  This class is an opportunity to learn with a rotating member of Hadar faculty.  We’ll explore Torah and ideas that feel relevant to the moment.  The last 15 minutes of each session will be an opportunity to connect with colleagues to discuss the learning and share support in this challenging moment. 

This class will run through the Rabbinic Yeshiva Intensive, March 3-6.  We encourage you to join us for an incredible week of learning with colleagues in New York. You can learn more about the intensive on our website
