A Shalom Hartman Institute Lecture and Study Series

Led by Rabbi David

Through video lectures, text study, and lively group discussion, we are pleased to bring the world-renowned faculty of the Shalom Hartman Institute into JCOGS beginning this summer.

iEngage: Israel’s Milestones and Their Meanings explores the pivotal events of 1917, 1947, and 1967 as key moments when Zionism unleashed new thinking about the meaning of Jewishness for generations to come. Memory is a central element in defining modern Jewish identity. As we look to Israel’s future, we need to engage anew with our past and explore its meanings and consequences. This iEngage series grapples with the different ideas and values that shape the meaning of modern Israel, Zionism, and Jewish identity today.

Each session includes text study and discussion led by Rabbi David,

and video lectures and roundtable discussions with leading Hartman scholars.

The first two sessions: Thursdays, August 16 and 30, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Location: JCOGS
