The retreat -- and the weeks of follow-up havruta learning on-line -- was a tremendous Torah learning opportunity for which I am deeply grateful, and I would highly recommend this program to rabbis and rabbinical students. Oraita continues on June 16–19 with Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi (via video-conference) and Dr. Arthur Green teaching on “Judaism of the 21st Century: Paradigms and Practices for the Global Age” at the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center in Falls Village, Conn.
Natan Margalit is a great teacher and scholar who is heading up the Oraita program. If you're interested, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-559-8617. Or visit hebrewcollege.edu/oraita.
