Each year the shul hosts 4-6 Scholar-in-Residence programs that feature many of the most prominent Rabbis, scholars and educators from the modern Orthodox world. In the past, the shul has been honored to host Rabbi Saul Berman, Executive Director of Edah and Rabbi Kenneth Brander, Director of the Center for the Jewish Future at Yeshiva University. An important component of the Scholar in Residence program is our annual Shabbat T'Lamdeini program that celebrates outstanding female Torah scholarship.
Summer Beit Midrash
Each summer we are privileged to host this exciting program led by Rabbi Aryeh Klapper. Approximately 15 exceptional young men and women learn intensively in the shul beit midrash for six weeks during the summer and offer chavrutaot (learning partners) for the wider shul community. In addition, there are public lectures offered to the shul community, as well as a Shabbat with Rabbi Klapper as a Scholar-in-Residence.
