The Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies is an independently funded organization and our event fees only cover a fraction of the cost of our programs. We rely on your generosity to continue to offer the highest-quality learning opportunities to our community.

The Haberman Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible as allowable by law.

We hope you will support our mission by becoming a Friend of the Institute. Year-round benefits vary by the program and include discounted rates on programs that have registration fees, such as our Days of Learning, Learning on Wheels, non-Melton classes, and cultural events.

Friends renew their status every summer to receive benefits throughout the academic year.

The rates for 2019-20 are $100 per individual or $120 per couple.
