Following a successful launch of our ScholarStream program in 5781, we are excited to announce the full year of ScholarStream learning in 5782! Beginning in October and spanning all the way up to Shavuot, the Conservative Movement seminaries and institutions are partnering to offer eight series that will bring your community face-to-face with the brightest and most engaging scholars our movement has to offer.
Scholarstream 5782 features three distinct arcs of learning that stand alone or flow into each other. Cultivating Our Relationships (series 1 & 2), Defining Our Sacred Spaces (series 3, 4, and 5), and Renewing Our Resilience (series 6, 7, and 8) will offer an exploration of who we are, where we are in relation to others, and how we move forward in this complicated world.

Sponsorship pricing is $100 per series for congregations up to 399 members, and $200 per series for 400+ members. This year we are pleased to offer an annual sponsorship rate of $450/$900 (respective to congregation size) that provides access to all eight series for the entire year. Individuals can also sign up
at a cost of $25 per series, or $125 to gain access to all eight.
Some communities may choose to continue learning together following the formal session. We will provide discussion questions for each class to help clergy prepare for any follow up discussion they may choose to conduct.
All sponsoring congregations will receive a discount code to send to their congregants to register for free. Congregants must sign up individually for the sessions – registration is available here
. Sponsorships will be accepted on a rolling basis, but note it may take a few days to process your sponsorship and provide your discount code, so please try to leave ample time to get your congregants registered for the series.
