Adult Education Opportunities in our Community

Hartman@Home is a series of ongoing learning opportunities with the Shalom Hartman Institute.

The Shalom Hartman Institute is a leading center of Jewish thought and education, serving Israel and North America. Their mission is to strengthen Jewish peoplehood, identity, and pluralism; to enhance the Jewish and democratic character of Israel, and to ensure that Judaism is a compelling force for good in the 21st century.

Hartman@Home fall 2020 programming will begin with a two-week symposium on Judaism, Citizenship & American Democracy from October 19-30, and will continue through the end of the calendar year with daily and weekly sessions on topics pertaining to Jewish peoplehood, ethics, and identity.
