Full-time Summer Study: For Rabbinical and Jewish Education Students
Yeshivat Hadar welcomes future Rabbis or Jewish educational professionals to learn in our beit midrash and encourages you to enroll in classes at the Yeshiva. (Your home rabbinical seminary or Jewish educational institution may be willing to help defray some of the costs). To enroll in specific classes at Hadar please click here.
Rabbinical and Jewish Education students are also invited to become full-time students in our immersive program. If you feel that you could be a force for Yeshivat Hadar's vision in your professional future and are interested in being a full participant in the summer session, please fill out the summer application link above. As a full-time student, you will be a fully integrated member of the student community and will participate fully in all aspects of life at the Yeshiva. Accepted students will receive a tuition remission scholarship, but are not eligible for living stipends.
Full-time Israeli Applicants
Qualified Israeli students applying to our immersion programs will be considered for a stipend to facilitate travel to the United States.
