This immersive was last held in March 2021. Stay tuned for more information about when we'll hold this immersive in the future.
In some ways, the role of rabbis during the pandemic has remained the same, only at a higher pitch: counseling, teaching, leading, nourishing, mourning, and much more; in other ways it has felt disorientingly new-- counseling without physical presence, teaching without eye contact, leading through screens, nourishing from a distance, mourning without seeing. We face the challenge of trying to balance very real human needs, on the one hand, with the imperatives of safety, on the other.
Not surprisingly, many of us have had neither the time nor the emotional space for serious learning, or for the self-care that we all need in order to sustain our energy and creativity.
Hadar’s Virtual Rabbinic Yeshiva Intensive aims to refill our spiritual and intellectual wells. Curated by Rabbi Shai Held and taught by Hadar’s renowned Faculty, RYI offers a remarkable space for rabbis of all backgrounds to come together to learn resonant and relevant Torah in Hadar’s virtual beit midrash.
Far from being a professional skills workshop, RYI enables Rabbis who love to learn Torah but have a thousand daily commitments and responsibilities to engage their passion for Jewish content and conversation.
