Ideas for Today

Ideas for Today

Fall/Winter Course Catalog

What are the big Jewish ideas we need for this moment? Hartman scholars tackle pressing issues of our day so we can think and do better:

  • Living a Jewish Life: How can Jewish faith, ethics, and practice help us live more meaningful lives?

  • Israel & Jewish Peoplehood: Why should Israel matter to a 21st century North American Jew? 

  • Judaism in the Public Square: What’s at stake when Judaism and civics intersect?
