Torah of Possibility for an Uncertain Future

Hartman Virtual Summer Symposium 2021

Even in the most challenging times for the Jewish people, scholars at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Israel and North America push themselves to think about what could be and to focus on a Torah of Possibility. 

At our Summer 2021 Virtual Symposium we explored what the Jewish future could look like through public lectures, deep conversations, study seminars, and intimate learning opportunities. Videos from many of the sessions are below.
