, a compilation of more than 50 articles and essays by members of the iEngage Project team from the last five years, has been published
as an e-book, the first from the project and the Shalom Hartman Institute.
These impactful and timely articles, selected from among more than 100 published by iEngage Project team members, best represent the iEngage Project themes and topics. Alan D. Abbey, SHI Director of Media and Internet Services, who compiled the collection with input from iEngage team members, particularly Donniel Hartman, and Laura Gilinski
, Chief Public Relations and Development Officer, said that he was pleased to find that few of the iEngage essays were outdated, even in the fast-moving world of today’s current Middle East.
“By declining to participate in the shouting match of the day, and by placing Jewish values at the forefront of their responses, iEngage Project team members have created content of lasting value, even as their articles were written in reaction to situations that may now have changed,” Abbey said.
Of particular interest are several articles by Donniel Hartman published before the iEngage Project was inaugurated in 2010. In those articles, Donniel can be seen working out the philosophy, objectives, and approach of iEngage. The articles span five years, from late in 2008, at the beginning of Pillar of Defense, Israel’s incursion into Gaza, through the summer of 2013.
