Fellows in our teacher-training programs emerge with a new lens through which to view the Talmud. They understand that Judaism’s approach to creating fully realized human beings requires them to be flexible in the face of rapid change.
Our Fellows recognize the centrality of svara (moral intuition) as a tool to upgrade Jewish tradition, and nurture their students as active “players” toward a liberatory Jewish future.

This two-year program combines intensive Talmud study with training in pedagogy and facilitation to equip teachers to model public learning in SVARA’s method.
A rigorous seven-month learning space for rabbis and educators working in Jewish communities who are seeking to expand their pedagogical toolkits to include SVARA’s traditionally radical, empowering approach to teaching Talmud.
Talmud Pedagogy Project
A year-long fellowship for Hebrew College rabbinical students and rabbinical school alumni to become joyful, empathetic, inclusive, and rigorous teachers of Talmud.
