The Community Leadership Summer Retreat (formerly known as the Lay Leaders Retreat) is designed for individuals of all denominational and educational backgrounds. The combination of faculty lecture and small group havruta-style study – along with specially designed tiyulim/day trips – make the program a one-of-a-kind opportunity for those who seek to deepen their knowledge of Judaism and utilize their influence and leadership to address the most important challenges facing Jewish life.

"Studying at the Hartman Institute in Jerusalem has had a tremendous impact on my life and in my involvement in my community. With the guidance of the phenomenal faculty and in dialogue with classmates from across North America, I approached Jewish texts in a whole new way and came away from the experience invigorated and more knowledgeable. That week has made me better equipped as a leader who cares about the future of North American Jewish life."
The Rabbinic Torah Study Seminar offers a rare opportunity for rabbinic leaders of all denominations to study jointly in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Participants come together as colleagues on equal footing to move beyond denominational divisions and discover their similarities, while learning from their differences.
"RTS charges my batteries for the entire year, and hardly a day goes by without my considering something that was said or that we learned during the course of the program. I can’t even find the vocabulary to adequately express how important RTS has been for me intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and even physically." -Rabbi Sam Kieffer, Weston, FL
