The Hamas attacks of October 7 created a new reality for Israelis and Jews around the world. Our communities are experiencing deep pain, grief, fear, and loss. Many of us are grappling with profound moral questions and seeking Jewish wisdom to respond to this unprecedented moment in Jewish history.

Building on decades of research, thought leadership, and bridge building, the Shalom Hartman Institute is uniquely positioned to play a critical role responding to the challenges of this moment. The Institute quickly and fundamentally changed the scale and scope of our work to provide relief, comfort, community, meaning, and solidarity to Israelis and North American Jewish communities.

The Institute’s scholarship, expertise, and ideas are equipping Jewish leaders with the resources they need to guide us in navigating our new reality.
