The Shalom Hartman Institute is pleased to announce a new organizational structure built around three centers focusing on our core areas of advanced Judaic Studies research, educational initiatives in Israel, and North American leadership development.
This new structure is designed to position Hartman Institute for growth and expansion in Israel and in North America, to better serve existing constituencies, whether they are rabbis, teachers, IDF officers or students, and to enhance efforts to reach out to additional individuals and organizations.
Our website has been redesigned to reflect the new organizational structure, as will our soon-to-be-launched Hebrew website.

The Fellows are drawn from the faculties of Israel’s leading institutes of advanced education and come to the Center for intensive year-round work. Their research and publications develop new directions in Jewish thought, original interpretations of classic Jewish concepts and ideas.
