Shalom Hartman Institute Beit Midrash for Rabbis

The Hartman Beit Midrash Series is a partnership of The Shalom Hartman Institute of North America and The Board of Rabbis of Southern California/The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.

Rabbis from across the denominational spectrum join for a series of opportunities to study with visiting faculty from the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem and North America. The following is a selection of recent beit midrash topics:

  • Dr. Orit Avnery: Insiders and Outsiders: The Communal Implications of Megilat Ruth for 21st Century Jewry
  • Dr. Micah Goodman: The Birth of Moshe – Reflections on a Biblical Hero
  • Dr. Tal Becker: Re-Imagining the Moral Challenge of Ruptured Socities
  • Rabbi Dr. Alex Kaye: Questioning Assumptions about Religion and State in Israel: Lessons from History for the Future
  • Elana Stein Hain: The Defining of Jewish Identity in Rabbinic Literature

The Hartman Beit Midrash in Los Angeles is open to all rabbis.
