We are a Learning Community

Learning has always been an integral part of our community.

We are proud to present a rich variety of educational opportunities in an egalitarian, pluralistic setting for contemporary Jewish-Israeli learning from the perspective of the world Masorti (Conservative) Movement. Its aim is to create a commitment to continuous learning, and its courses are open to members of Hod veHadar as well as the community at large living in Kfar Saba and the surrounding Sharon region. We offer an interactive educational experience, in which lecturers present well-researched, engaging talks followed by group discussions.
