New York serves as the national headquarters of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Hartman in North America, convening local lay and professional leaders as well as leaders of national organizations based in New York, and employing sophisticated research-based approaches to Jewish values to guide conversations around Jewish peoplehood, identity and pluralism; Israel as a Jewish and democratic state; and ensuring that Judaism is a compelling force for good in the 21st century.
Our NY city office located in Morningside Heights near Columbia University is a hub for applied Jewish thought – you might find David Hartman Center Fellows exploring a new angle of research; day school leaders studying questions around gender and equality; rabbinical students tackling the relationship between Jewish values and American democracy; camp directors brainstorming new approaches to Israel education, and a Hartman scholar preparing to take a deep dive into their latest publication or a section of Talmud. At the same time, our faculty are leading programs in offices, synagogues, community centers and homes around the New York region.
Partnership with Other Organizations
