Project Zug Elul Cycle

Shearith Israel and Hadar are embarking on a partnership this season through Project Zug Elul Cycle: Windows on Teshuvah to empower (havrutah) partnered learning in our community. Project Zug is an online platform for Jewish text learning in pairs.

All are encouraged to participate, from seasoned Judaic scholars to first-time havrutah-study participants. Once paired with a havruta partner for the learning (you may choose your own partner!), you will make arrangements to learn together virtually or in-person to engage in the self-led text studies and discussions. Two sessions will be facilitated online by Rabbi Shai Held. Rabbi Kaiman will host four weekly in-person Beit Midrash study sessions at CSI during the Elul cycle on Thursday nights, August 12- September 2, from 7:30- 9pm.

Please register by Friday, July 30 via the button below.
