OUR VALUES, OUR ASPIRATIONS: A JEWISH COMMUNAL CONVERSATION
In partnership with the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, a leading center of Jewish thought and education, Federation is focusing on civic engagement through a Jewish lens, and engaging our community to think about and lead on the big questions facing North American Jewry. In the first year of the partnership, we offered three public lectures that focused on identity, partisanship, and our relationship with Israel. This fall, we begin the second year of the partnership with a new series of inspiring public lectures that integrate Jewish tradition, debates, and ideas.
