Shalom Hartman Institute
The Shalom Hartman Institute is a pluralistic center of research and education deepening and elevating the quality of Jewish life in Israel and around the world. Through their work, they are redefining the conversation about Judaism in modernity, religious pluralism, Israeli democracy, Israel and world Jewry and the relationship with other faith communities.
Their work focuses on developing compelling Jewish ideas capable of competing in the modern marketplace of identities and thought and building a Jewish people and a State of Israel that respect and celebrate diversity, as well as ensuring Israel's foundations as the democratic homeland of the Jewish people committed to equal rights and religious freedom for all and forming a strong mutual commitment between world Jewry and Israelis as equal partners in the future of Jewish life. Finally, they serve as a gateway for leaders of other faiths to engage with Judaism and Israel and build new foundations of understanding and cooperation.
