Judaism, Citizenship & Democracy
[email protected] two-week symposium exploring the key civic issues facing the Jewish community today.

The stakes for democracy are higher than ever, with our communities divided and tense.

For two weeks leading up to the U.S. elections, as we kick-off our [email protected] fall programming, Hartman scholars will bring calm and reason — along with passion and insight — to the key civic issues facing the Jewish community today.

Join us as we bring a Jewish lens to the civic obligations, issues, and leadership needed in this moment of global pandemic and unprecedented polarization.

From October 19-30, 2020 add Jewish learning to your election fervor by joining experts on religion and law, politics and morality, and the hermeneutics of Jewish political thought. You’ll even hear perspectives on how Israelis are viewing this U.S. election season.

This 2-week symposium offering day and evening sessions including salons, panels, book talks, and deeper learning opportunities, plus Con/Text a new daily bite-sized take on the role of citizens in a democracy featuring a different Hartman scholar each day.

[email protected] programming is offered free of charge. Your support helps make our programming possible.

Learn with top Hartman scholars and guest speakers, with more to be announced!
