On the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War, modern Israel is in search of its future. Looking forward requires us to re-engage with our past, to explore its meaning and consequences, and decide what we should embrace, what needs re-interpretation, and from what we should break free. #HartmanSummer 2017 will address some of the most significant challenges and questions facing modern Israel, reimagining the claims of our past, and imagining the possibilities for our future, through lectures, seminars, day trips, and special programs.

- Rabbinic Torah Study Seminar (RTS) July 4-July 13, 2017 For more information on RTS and to register, click here.
Rabbinic Torah Study Seminar (RTS) is an annual 10-day study program that enriches rabbis of all denominations and nurtures their capacity to inspire their communities. Rabbis play a pivotal role in determining the direction and quality of Jewish life. In order to realize the full potential of their roles, rabbis need to cultivate spiritual and intellectual vibrancy and excellence. They require ongoing learning, personal growth, and new ideas for communal reflection and stimulation.
Rabbinic Torah Study Seminar offers a rare opportunity for rabbinic leaders of all denominations to study together in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Participants explore the contemporary issues facing the Jewish people and elevate their leadership through transformative learning -- hevruta study, lectures, small group seminars, peer workshops, tiyyulim, and evening programs.
