The Hartman Institute describes its Community Leadership Summer Retreat as “an annual weeklong seminar dealing with major questions facing Judaism in the modern age. The program, in operation for more than 20 years, takes place at the Institute’s beautiful campus in the heart of Jerusalem and draws scores of North American lay leaders from across the continent and denominational spectrum.”
