Hartman Institute Study Trip

2020 Hartman Institute Summer Study

All Together Now: Jewish Ideas for this Moment

Monday June 29 – Thursday July 23, 2020


Join us on Temple Emanuel’s Mission to learn Torah at the Hartman Institute in Jerusalem


  • Learn Torah with the greatest living teachers of Torah in Jerusalem. Scholars include Donniel Hartman and Micah Goodman, both of whom have taught here in the past few years. Their Torah sparkles — filled with passion, joy and insight
  • Join us in optional small sessions for our Temple Emanuel group
  • Experience Israel through the Hartman Institute’s programs on contemporary Israel and culture
  • Enjoy incredible community-building among the Temple Emanuel members who attend. Nothing bonds like being in Israel together, but the opportunity to study together from afar offers a taste of the Hartman experience from the safety of your home

The Hartman experience is appropriate for adults, and no particular Judaic background is needed to enjoy the program!
