Upcoming Programs

There are many opportunities throughout the year to get some Talmud served up the old fashioned way—hardcore, queer, and radically inclusive—with SVARA! SVARA hosts pop-up bet midrash learning and immersive programs around the country, as well as regular weekly batei midrash in several cities. Check out what’s comin’ up at your favorite queer yeshiva, and we can’t wait to welcome to you to the SVARA bet midrash!


Gemara Boost Camp

SVARA’s Gemara Boost Camp is an opportunity to explore new areas of depth in your learning on your journey to being a player! Join SVARA Faculty for a soulful, intimate, and shtark* full day or weekend of study and community building.

*Putting the hardcore back in “hardcore, queer, and radically inclusive” 😉

This winter we’re hitting up three cities to help you level up your learning! Join us in Berkeley (Jan. 3-5), New York (Jan. 10-12), or Chicago (Jan. 17-19), and learn more here!


Teaching for the Revolution: A SVARA Pedagogy Intensive

Bring SVARA’s *MAGIC* to your teaching! Join teachers and educators of all kinds (if you’re wondering if that includes you, it probably does!) for a unique learning opportunity. This training will give you additional tools to help you integrate elements of SVARA’s method into your teaching, and will include sessions on pedagogy and practical skill-building. This is a great opportunity for professional development! 

This spring we’ll be diving deep with teachers in Boston (March 22-23) and New York City (April 26-27), and we’d love to learn with you! Learn more here.
