The goal of “SHI Inside Out” blog is to update you on activity happening at the Shalom Hartman Institute. We invite you to check back here regularly for an insider’s view of events at the Institute; news and updates about our programs; and commentary from our internationally renowned scholars about critical issues of the day.
Drawing upon 3000 years of Jewish intellectual thought, the Shalom Hartman Institute produces big ideas to meet contemporary challenges and ignite passionate inspiration in readers around the world. Residing in the heart of Jerusalem, our reach is global; our goals—universal.
So whether we are talking about politics in Israel, Jewish law in government practice, Judaism and gender, Jewish pluralism and identity, or the multi-layered richness of Jewish texts from the Bible to Bialik, you will find that our opinions reflect our commitment to Jewish pluralism combined with learning and scholarship at the highest levels.
All these issues have one thing in common: an explosive meeting of past and present, for determining the future of the Jewish people.
Let’s create that future together.
