The Community Leadership Program (CLP) is Shalom Hartman Institute's annual summer program for a diverse group of lay leaders from across North America. Participants join senior Shalom Hartman Institute scholars in Jerusalem to explore foundational Jewish ideas and central dilemmas of contemporary Jewish life.
This intensive week-long, text-based study seminar features leading scholars in Bible, Talmud, Jewish philosophy and theology, history, and mysticism. Each summer has a theme from Jewish tradition around which texts and ideas are arranged.
About Community Leadership Summer Retreat
The study seminar attracts a wide range of adult learners - synagogue board members, Federation lay leaders, and activists in Jewish organizations - interested in a week of pluralistic, open-minded, intellectually rigorous Jewish study.
The program strengthens and expands the intellectual horizons of community leaders, enabling them to respond more meaningfully to the contemporary issues and challenges facing Jewish life.
The faculty includes leading Hartman Institute scholars such as Donniel Hartman, Yehuda Kurtzer, Dr. Ruth Calderon, Micah Goodman, and Melila Hellner-Eshed, in addition to other key figures in world Jewry.
