Thank you for your interest in the August 2015 Generous Justice training at the National Havurah Committee (NHC) Summer Institute in Rindge, New Hampshire!
Upon acceptance, Generous Justice trainees will be expected to register for the NHC Summer Institute, and to reserve their places in the training by purchasing a copy of the training resource manual (estimated cost $20). Accepted trainees must commit to attending all 10 contact training hours. These include 4 hours beyond regular course time that will be open to the full Institute community.
Outside of training hours, trainees will be able to take advantage of additional Institute course and workshop offerings, prayer services, spirited conversation, late-night jam sessions, singing, dancing, swimming, meditation, and hiking—all in the company of more than 300 people from a wide range of backgrounds. Each year participants leave the Institute reinvigorated and excited to return to their home communities to share new ideas and experiences. Institute financial assistance is available to all trainees.
If you would like to participate in the Generous Justice training, please complete the application below. (Please note that answers cannot be saved as a draft. You may wish to draft your answers in a separate document, and then copy and paste them into this form before submitting the application.)
The release of debts in the shmita / sabbatical year originally followed six years of tithing. Generous Justice trainees will help to develop a Jewish pledge for percentage giving, building upon following words-in-progress:
* I intend to track my income and expenses as regularly and accurately as possible.
* I intend to look clearly at how much money I give—as a percentage of how much I earn and spend. I intend to explore this percentage as a reflection of my values, as well as of my financial situation.
* I intend to seek out the support of others who are similarly committed to this process.
A Generous Justice circle may be family-based, or it may be organized through one or more personal networks, independent prayer / study groups, synagogues, schools, or service / advocacy organizations.
If I am accepted into the Generous Justice leadership training, I am committed to purchasing the training resource manual, to registering for the 2015 NHC Summer Institute, and to attending all scheduled training sessions throughout the week.
