As reported earlier (see post below, and see here), Hartman Institute Co-Director David Hartman received an honorary doctorate from Weizmann Institute in Rehovot earlier this week. Here’s the wording used to describe his Doctor of Philosophy Honoris Causa in recognition:

Of his life’s work to revitalize Judaism and strengthen Jewish identity among Jews the world over, particularly the youth, a mission he has persistently pursued through his endeavors as an internationally renowned philosopher, author and gifted educator;

Of his outstanding contributions to Israeli society and world Jewry through the Shalom Hartman Institute, which he has led for more than three decades to an eminent position at the forefront of Jewish thought and Jewish education;

Above all, of his gift of vision and action, faith and scholarship toward building a more pluralistic, tolerant and enlightened Israeli society.

We’re back from vacation at Shalom Hartman Institute to get ready for the upcoming school year. The campus is being spiffed up, teachers from the Institute’s girls’ high school, Midrashiya, are here getting pre-season training.

New this year: as a convenience to parents, fees for the boys’ and girls’ high schools can be paid online, here.

Coming up on the academic side are new programs for Israeli women academics and Israeli scholars of Judaism and gender.

We’ll be announcing names of new scholars and faculty members soon, as well.

On the website itself, we’re preparing new sections on educational material, as well as on the High Holidays. We welcome suggestions and contributions. Please send your material here.
