Hartman Institute holds special seminar for Jewish Funders Conference

Hartman seminar, March 30, to tackle ethical challenges of Jewish sovereignty, such as pluralism, diversity


The Shalom Hartman Institute and Jewish Funders Network are cooperating on a special one-day seminar in advance of the Funders Network’s first-ever, Israel-based conference beginning March 31.
The Hartman seminar, to be held Sunday, March 30, is titled: “The Ethical Challenges of Jewish Sovereignty.”
Jewish sovereignty poses new challenges and ethical dilemmas. Among the major issues facing the Jewish people inside and outside the State of Israel are the challenges of religious pluralism, diversity and multiple narratives among different groups who share the same national home.
Some of the questions that will be considered in this one-day seminar include:  
  • Given such diversity and competing values, what principles of leadership policy might be developed?
  • In such a reality what Jewish values might guide the investment of limited resources?
  • Are there elements of a shared narrative among the different elements of Israeli society and what can strengthen it?  
Speakers at the program include Shalom Hartman Institute co-director Rabbi Prof. David Hartman, Institute co-director Rabbi Dr. Donniel Hartman and Institute Senior Fellow Dr. Moshe Halbertal.
This special Hartman Institute Seminar for Jewish Philanthropists and Foundation Professionals will take place at the Shalom Hartman Institute, 11 Gedalyahu Allon St., in Jerusalem, and will run from 9 am-3 pm, and include a kosher dairy lunch. Fee for the day is $70. Contact Meirav Fishman or call +972.2.567.5301 for further information.
Jewish Funders Network 2008 Conference in Jerusalem is an international Jewish gathering on philanthropy, and is open to members and qualified non-members.
