JET's 2021 Yarchei Kallah: Weeklong Extravaganza line up includes local Beit Tikvah Rabbi, Rabbi Aryeh Kravetz with the great question Jewish Leaders: Born or Made?
This weeklong series takes an in-depth look at Jewish leadership roles. Who they are as individuals and what is their
contribution to the well-being of Jewish society? From the King, to the prophet, to the parent, see how a part of every leader exists within every one of us. Join us for one day or all five!
The JET Yarchei Kallah is modeled after the description of the Yarchei Kallah in the Talmud. In the two months of the year (Elul and Adar) when agricultural activity was less demanding, Jews would take the opportunity to return to the study halls to reinvigorate their Torah knowledge, thus strengthening their ties to Judaism. The word Kallah means assembly; Yarchei means month; hence the term refers to those months when they would assemble to study Torah.
