About our Summer Community Leadership Program

The Community Leadership Program (CLP) is an intensive week-long, text-based study seminar features leading scholars in Bible, Talmud, Jewish philosophy and theology, history, and mysticism. Each summer has a theme from Jewish tradition around which texts and ideas are arranged.

Who Attends?

The program attracts a wide range of adult learners – synagogue board members, Federation lay leaders, and activists in Jewish organizations – interested in a week of pluralistic, open-minded, intellectually rigorous Jewish study that strengthens and expands their intellectual horizons, enabling them to respond more meaningfully to the contemporary issues and challenges facing Jewish life.
