About Us

The Davar Institute was launched in 2000 in response to perceived community desire for intellectually challenging and stimulating lectures, programs and events in a modern orthodox context.

The Davar Institute is a modern Orthodox think tank that is open to the entire community. Davar strives to expose our audience to unique speakers and programs to enhance our interests and understanding of Torah, halacha, and Jewish culture, philosophy, music and art.

In 2013, the community of Skokie Illinois requested to form a branch of Davar as a result of their enthusiasm about our speakers, principles, and practices.  We have since shared speakers and agendas to further the educational model in other Orthodox communities through a broader array of intellectually open and challenging scholars and professors and other educators.
