The Shalom Hartman Institute Library will inaugurate the Shemaryahu Talmon
section of the Alvin Cramer Segal Library
, December 29. Prof. Talmon has dedicated this collection of 10,000 books, mostly in the area of Bible studies, to the Shalom Hartman Institute in memory of his parents, Yom Tov Lipman and Hannah Zelmanowicz, and his sisters, Gerda-Leah and Regina-Rebekkah, who perished in the Holocaust.
Both David Hartman
and Donniel Hartman
