Covenantal Zionism: Religious Perspectives

Dr. Elana Stein Hain is the Rosh Beit Midrash and a senior research fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, where she serves as lead faculty and consults on the content of lay and professional programs. A widely well-regarded thinker and teacher, Elana is passionate about bringing rabbinic thought into conversation with contemporary life. To this end, she hosts TEXTing, a bi-weekly podcast that considers issues relevant to Jewish life through the lens

Elana Stein Hain tells us that Judaism itself is less rich without Jews living autonomously in Israel, because the covenant between God and the Jewish people includes the promise of Jews continually returning to this land. This session was recorded on June 29, 2022 during the summer Community Leadership Program at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem.
