Let The Torah Inspire You

We are excited to present several learning options and focus groups to provide multiple opportunities for you to engage with Torah study. Our renowned faculty will be teaching sessions on a wide range of topics, presented in true Hadar style – with authenticity and innovation.


In a class setting, Hadar faculty will explore questions about different Torah texts and how they can inspire and influence us.


Derived from the Hebrew word for “friend,” paired havruta study is a key component of Hadar’s approach to learning.

Learning Options

You will have the opportunity to gather in different networking groups to explore topics and questions about which you are passionate.

Networking Groups

For the first time, we are pleased to offer two optional networking groups at the Shabbaton: one on Israel/Disapora relations and the second on halakhic egalitarian parenting.

Before the Shabbaton, there will be an opportunity to meet group participants online and prepare together through readings and conversations for your Shabbaton experience. Various sessions during the Shabbaton will be recommended based on your shared passions and interests. There will be space provided at the Shabbaton for the group to connect and discuss the topic at hand. There will also be a chance for continued group involvement after the weekend concludes so that you can deepen the conversations that you begin at the Shabbaton. 

Sign up form coming soon!
