Welcome to registration for the 2018 NHC Summer Institute! We look forward to meeting this year at the University of Hartford. We feel such excitement and gratitude for the work of so many people as we look forward to an amazing lineup of classes, to inspiring teachings from the Timbrel Artists in Residence, Liturgist-in-Residence, and Hollander Social Justice Fellow, and to collaborating to create a warm community built on spirituality and social justice, study and song.
The theme for this year’s Institute is “Dabru al Lev - Speak to the Heart” (Isaiah 40:2, Haftarah for Shabbat Nachamu). When we “speak to the heart” and connect with one another with compassion and authenticity, we open ourselves to real relationship and to new perspectives. Speaking gently yet honestly, no matter how challenging the subject matter, is a courageous act that plants seeds of transformation. We are excited to gather with you at NHC to co-create a dynamic, intergenerational community that fosters curiosity, love of Torah, and heart connection. Looking forward to seeing you at the 2018 NHC Summer Institute in Hartford, CT!
