1917, 1947, 1967: The Legacy of The Past
and The Future of Modern Israel
On the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War, modern Israel is in search of its future. Looking forward requires us to re-engage with our past, to explore its meaning and consequences, and decide what we should embrace, what needs re-interpretation, and from what we should break free.
#HartmanSummer 2017 will address some of the most significant challenges and questions facing modern Israel, reimagining the claims of our past, and imagining the possibilities for our future, through lectures, seminars, day trips, and special programs.
Dr. Elana Stein Hain, Director of Leadership Education at Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, says that in contrast to the debate and vitriol we are seeing around these anniversaries, this summer's program is not going to be about slogans or facile answers.
"It's going to be about facing issues positive and negative, what it means to have conflicting narratives, making meaning of them, having deep values conversations around them, challenging ourselves, and celebrating the good, while looking forward to the future," she says,
Register now for these programs, one for community and lay leaders, the other for rabbis, cantors, and Jewish educators.
