Where in the UK can we find learning that:

- provides the skills to unlock our own tradition

- isn't afraid to dive into difficult texts

- is open to everyone, regardless of background, denomination or gender?

The Azara summer programme will be the first ever coed yeshiva programme in Europe's 2,000 year Jewish history. For one month, participants of all backgrounds will come together to immerse in Jewish texts and form a community of learners. Weve already received a significant number of applicationsnow we just need the financial resources to make it happen.

This is an investment in our community. The learning wont stop at the end of the summerwe will empower participants to become lifelong Torah learners and teachers, however they imagine that role. The Azara summer programme is a gateway to a more informed Anglo-Jewry, connected to our own tradition.

We believe that Torah learning is transformative. By engaging with deep, nuanced Jewish texts and each other, we gain the skills to think deeply about moral problems. We become better equipped to navigate the critical issues facing our community today.

"Without bread, there is no Torah. Without Torah, there is no bread."

- Pirkei Avot, 3:21
