The David Hartman Center for Intellectual Excellence is an incubator for emerging intellectual talent in Israel and North
America, supporting young researchers as they become applied thinkers who will address the critical questions facing the Jewish people today.
Outstanding scholars from Israel and North America focusing on Jewish studies, religion, philosophy, political science, and law are provided with intellectual training and mentorship to mine their disciplines for ideas addressing the central challenges facing contemporary Jewish and religious life.
The David Hartman Center serves as a feeder for the Institute’s Kogod Research Center, ensuring the establishment of the next generation of Hartman scholarship and the influx of new ideas into the Institute and the greater Israeli society. The intellectual leaders cultivated through the David Hartman Center are generating a renaissance in Jewish life in Israel and around the world.
We are grateful to the Jim Joseph Foundation and the Koret Foundation for their partnership and support of our initiatives.
