Darkhei Noam hosts three scholar-in-residence weekends each year. During a Scholar-in-Residence Shabbat, our scholar will typically speak three times: on Friday night following Kabbalat Shabbat, on Shabbat morning before Mussaf, and at our community lunch. 
We strive to ensure that our Scholars in Residence present our community with a wide range of topics.
