The Hadar New York College Fellowship is designed for students from across NYC who are eager to engage in learning with fellow students at Hadar’s Beit Midrash on the Upper West Side.

Every Monday during the fall semester, fellows will convene for dinner, a sihah (conversation), and a Beit Midrash-style class led by Hadar faculty. Each week’s sihah will offer an opportunity to engage in informal discussions with Hadar faculty on various topics. Examples of discussion topics include living a life of hesed (loving-kindness); theology and God; and the philosophy of halakhah (Jewish law).

Fellows are strongly encouraged to attend Manger Winter Learning Seminar.  Scholarships are available to Fellows who require financial assistance to attend. 

Fellows will meet every Monday night during the fall semester. An average session will include:

6:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Making Sense of the Laws of Shabbat
In this class, we'll engage in an in-depth study of Shabbat. We'll trace how these laws developed, from their earliest appearances in Tanakh and Rabbinic sources through contemporary responsa. We will consider this topic both on its own terms, and as an example of halakhic thinking and what motivates different halakhic conclusions.

Origin Stories: Close Readings in Bereishit
In this class, we'll study the weekly parsha with classic commentators. What messages are the books of Bereishit and Shemot teaching us, and how do these later commentators draw out meaning from the details of the text?
