The rabbis, Christian scholars, community leaders, and educators who packed the Shalom Hartman Institute in July have left, but that does not mean the hallways and classrooms at the Institute will be dark in August. The Institute will host numerous Taglit-Birthright Israel groups for studies throughout the month.
Each group of young adults on their 10-day tour of Israel will study at the Institute for a three-hour session, thus making the Hartman Institute a significant stopover in their whirlwind tour of Israel.
Birthright brings thousands of Jewish young adults from around the world to Israel on free trips designed to increase their knowledge of, connections to, and interest in the Jewish state.
You care about Israel, peoplehood, and vibrant, ethical Jewish communities. We do too.
