Through video lectures, text study, and group discussion, we are bringing the world-renowned faculty of the Shalom Hartman Institute into our Shaare Emeth community this fall.
What are the benefits of Jewish sovereignty?
How should a Jewish state exercise military power ethically?
How do we create and maintain a Jewish democracy?
Why should American Jews care about Israel?
What values should a Jewish state embody?
What can Israel offer the world?
Explore the Jewish values and ideas at the foundation of our relationship with Israel.
Each session includes text study and discussion led by Rabbi Bennett, enhanced by video lectures by Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman, and video dialogues between Rabbi Hartman and other top scholars and experts. Join us for this wonderful opportunity to learn from great scholars, from Rabbi Bennett, and from one another as we engage in thinking about the meaning that Israel can have in our lives and what our role might be in envisioning and building the future of the Jewish State.
Cost including materials: $50 for Shaare Emeth members, $75 for others
