The Shalom Hartman Institute is pleased to announce that on September 26 at 1:00 pm (+3 GMT), Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman will present a lecture at the annual Hakhel Festival which will take place at the Sapir College in Sderot:
‘”Not by might and not by force, but by my spirit” – A new spirit in the Israeli-Jewish dialogue’
The lecture, which will take place in Hebrew, will focus on how we, as Jews and Israelis, understand our sovereignty and cultivate affinity between Israeli and world Jewry. The Jewish people must formulate a common new narrative—based on a vocabulary of Jewish values–with which to define the role and significance of Israel and Zionism for contemporary Jewry around the world.
We have set up a Twitter “hashtag” (#Hakhel) which will make it easy to identify excerpts of the lecture. If you put this term (#Hakhel) in the search box on the right tool bar of the Twitter homepage you will see all of the messages written by the SHI representatives at the event. If you try it right now, you will see the announcement that we Tweeted (posted to Twitter) with the release of this message.
The Hakhel Festival is an annual, pluralistic Jewish gala event which brings together people from across the Israeli political, social, and cultural spectrum for Jewish learning, performing arts events, and panel discussions.
If there are any other methods via which the proceedings will be broadcast, we will let you know via our blog, our page on Facebook…and of course Twitter. If you have any additional questions about the event or our coverage of it, please feel free to contact Ilana Teitelbaum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
