First Day at The Hartman Institute Rabbinic Torah Seminar

The theme of the Rabbinic Torah Seminar for Summer 2022 is Overcoming the Moral Status Quo: A Torah of Human Agency


The Shalom Hartman Institute is a Jewish research and education institute based in Jerusalem, that offers pluralistic Jewish thought and education to scholars, rabbis, educators, and Jewish community leaders in Israel and North America. The institute's goal is to strengthen Jewish peoplehood, identity and pluralism, enhance the Jewish and democratic character of Israel, and ensure that Judaism is a compelling force for good in the 21st century.
