Review for Kehilat Hadar, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I spent two years living in New York City and Kehilat Hadar provided me with a strong and supportive community for prayer and Jewish life. During the summer of 2008 I learned at Yeshivat Hadar which transformed and greatly enhanced the way that I learn Jewish texts. It is largely because of Yeshivat Hadar and the faculty that I have decided to spend this year in Israel learning at the Pardes Institute. I have found that Hadar has done an amazing job of attracting the most thoughtful, knowledgeable, and influential staff, several of whom I remain in contact with, and who have helped me make a number of life decision. I believe that Hadar's goals are a necessary project for the modern American Jewish community, and I am continually awed by the pace of their growth and impact on my friends and the larger Jewish community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the connections to people and resources that it has provided for me, and the incredibly high level of learning and teaching that it inspires.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the type of people who I want to stay in touch with both personally and professionally.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way that Jews learn and think about Judaism and its role in their lives.

Ways to make it better...

I had had more free time to learn in the Yeshiva and involve myself in the larger projects of the organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial, especially given the state of the economy, and finding a permanent location so that they don't need to operate out of a less than ideal facility.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
