The Shalom Hartman Institute Lecture Series on DVD

We will once again be pairing with the Shalom Hartman Institute in Israel to present a special learning opportunity.

Founded by Rabbi Professor David Hartman in 1976 in the city of Jerusalem, SHI is a leader in pluralistic Jewish programs. In its 30 years of existence, SHI has become an increasingly visible force for promoting scholarship, education and leadership training influencing the Jewish world in Israel and the Diaspora. Today, SHI conducts activities for over 2,500 participants a year with a ripple effect that impacts tens of thousands of people annually in Israel, North America, South America and Europe.
