Community Blog Summer Faculty Speaking Engagements

By Hebrew College
word cloud with cities on a map

Each semester, Hebrew College faculty go beyond our classrooms to bring compelling, relevant and creative ideas to your community. We share our love of Torah, our commitment to communal and social responsibility, and our diverse perspectives to ask and help find answers to the most important and challenging questions of our time—and of our lives. Our faculty inspire, enlighten and engage.

If you have a morning, a weekend or an evening to explore these ideas, you can spend it with our faculty in cities across Greater Boston, North America and Israel at synagogues, conferences, theaters, or institutions. Below, you will find a sample of faculty appearances in the upcoming months.
