Taught virtually by Rabbi Barry Leff and Rabbi Jay Rosenbaum
Each class will run 90 minutes from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM
This Hartman course understands the challenge to Jewish unity today as the move from being a people with no permanent home to one with two permanent homes, Israel and North America. Through video lectures, interviews, and textual sources, this curriculum examines the forces dividing Israeli and American Jewry today, including nationalism, antisemitism, and identity politics; and, it imagines new conceptual frameworks that can help sustain and grow the story of our people for a new millennium.
When you register for the class, you will be given a password that gives you access to the Hartman videos and source material.
For each class, we will ask you to watch the main 30-minute Hartman video lecture in advance. During class we will review and discuss the lecture, watch a Hartman interview based on the lecture and discuss the video together.
