Since 1997, the Summer Beit Midrash (SBM) has provided college, graduate, and rabbinic students with the opportunity to think seriously and deeply about halakhah in an intense but open learning environment. The SBM is unique in its successful combination of top-level traditional study of rabbinic texts with complete openness to the critiques and insights of other methods, disciplines, and cultures, its focus on halakhah as a functional legal and political system rather than as a collection of details, and its ability to engage the most difficult theological and ethical issues within halakhah within a strongly supportive and completely committed Orthodox environment. The SBM believes that this program will develop a new generation of creative Orthodox leadership. More
