SUMMER BEIT MIDRASH INC Overview
Programs: The heart of the Summer Beit Midrash is a seven week summer institute, which trains community builders through an innovative combination of intense community-conscious study and hands-on community interaction. Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and include housing, food, and a competitive stipend. The intellectual focus of the institute is a Talmud shiur (lecture) that seeks to integrate textual and conceptual analysis with halakhic decision making, metahalakhic understanding, and moral reflection. The shiur builds toward the writing of a practical teshuvah (halakhic responsum) on a case chosen to emphasize the ethical and formal challenges of halakhic decision making. Fellows critically review each other
The mission of the Center for Modern Torah Leadership is to model and foster a vision of fully committed halakhic Judaism that
· embraces the intellectual and moral challenges of modernity as spiritual opportunities,
· recognizes that ideas and rhetoric have consequences, and takes responsibility for the societal implications of its interpretations of Torah,
· understands that the real-world effects of Torah are mediated by the character of Torah leaders, and that self-knowledge is therefore essential for Torah leadership, and
· takes the ultimate significance of all human beings as tzelem Elokimas a fundamental Torah principle.
