About the Harold M. Schulweis Institute

The Harold M. Schulweis Institute - A Center for Jewish Learning - was created to honor our beloved Rabbi on the occasion of his 80th birthday. The support of 10 very generous Valley Beth Shalom members, who each contributed $100,000 to create an endowment, enabled the founding of the Schulweis Institute whose mission it is to share with the generations to come Rabbi Schulweis’ vision of Jewish life and Jewish learning as developed at Valley Beth Shalom during his tenure.

The mission of the Harold M. Schulweis Institute is to share with generations to come, Rabbi Schulweis’ humanitarian and spiritual vision of Jewish life and learning that influenced the direction of all synagogue activities and the creation of innovative programs at Valley Beth Shalom during his tenure. To enhance Jewish life and influence the broader community, the Institute will continue to collect and introduce Rabbi Schulweis’ teachings and moral vision by promoting public access to his sermons, lectures, and scholarly writing, and by creating and supporting legacy programs affecting Jewish scholarship, the arts, and social action.
