Judaism & Israel – iEngage Seminar

hartman logo

The iEngage (Judaism and Israel)  seminar partners with world-class educators from the Shalom Hartman Institute to explore contemporary issues and the State of Israel. Students selected for this seminar will reframe the Israel discussion through values-based conversations, rather than politics or advocacy.

We will meet for approximately five sessions each semester (joining the iEngage cohort is a yearlong commitment). If conditions allow, a select group will also travel to Israel for a week at the end of the 2020-2021 school year, for a once-in-a-lifetime Jerusalem experience based at the Shalom Hartman Institute.

  • Do you connect with Israel as an idea? An ideal? A political, cultural, or religious entity? All or none of the above? Have you spent time in Israel? In what context? Feel free to interpret this question as you see fit.
  • The iEngage curriculum, as envisioned by the Hartman Institute, is rooted in text study about a variety of Jewish values (and eventually, about how our individual interpretations of those values influence our opinions on Israel)
