The Shalom Hartman Institute’s 2018 Community Leadership Program Summer Retreat (CLP), which draws more than 100 Jewish community leaders from North America to the Institute's Jerusalem campus every summer, is scheduled to be held June 20 - 27, 2018. The theme for 2018 will be: "Derech Eretz: Building Character and Building Society." Join us this summer for a timely exploration of character development and ethical leadership in the Jewish tradition.

The Community Leadership Program (CLP) is Shalom Hartman Institute's annual summer program for a diverse group of lay leaders from across North America. Participants join senior Shalom Hartman Institute scholars in Jerusalem to explore foundational Jewish ideas and central dilemmas of contemporary Jewish life.

This 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.

The faculty includes leading Hartman Institute scholars such as Donniel Hartman, Yehuda Kurtzer, Dr. Ruth Calderon, Micah Goodman, and Melila Hellner-Eshed, in addition to other key figures in world Jewry.

The program is open to individuals of all denominations from across North America and elsewhere who seek to deepen their knowledge of Judaism and its pluralistic voices and are committed to utilizing their influence and leadership to promote Jewish vitality in their community.
