TEXTing with Elana Stein Hain, our newest podcast where ancient wisdom meets contemporary relevance. 

Where ancient wisdom meets contemporary relevance.

TEXTing with Elana Stein Hain delves deeply into Jewish texts to guide and inspire us as we grapple with the concerns and meaning of this moment. Join Elana as she addresses the issues of our day through the lens of classical Jewish texts, in conversation with Hartman scholars Christine Hayes, Yonah Hain, and Leora Batnitzky.

In  the pilot episode on Loss and Uncertainty, Elana and Christine turn to the Talmud in tractate Hagigah to address the shock, disbelief, alienation, and despair that Israelis and Jews worldwide have endured since the devastation on October 7 and the subsequent Israel-Hamas War.

We are grateful to the Walder Charitable Fund and Micah Philanthropies for their generous support of TEXTing.
