What Past Executive Seminar Participants Say
"I love studying Jewish classical texts, and this week was in a class by itself. The historical perspective that was presented in almost all of the talks, the social background of the texts, was outstanding... But the jewel in the crown is the faculty itself, their mastery of the material, their love of teaching, and their warmth and affection for the learners. They model Torah shel Chesed."
"I can't wait to get back to studying with you at Mechon Hadar in the Fall and Winter."
"Learning was fabulous as always. I get more optimistic about the future feeling the energy in the room as young and old learn together. Everyone is so respectful of each other and eager to learn."
