Hartman Institute Study Trip

2020 Hartman Institute Study Trip

Truth & Reconciliation: Integrity and Pluralism in a World of Partisanship and #Fakenews

Wednesday June 24 – Wednesday July 1, 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
  • Experience and enjoy Jerusalem in your free time
  • Join us on optional tiyulim (excursions) for our Temple Emanuel group
  • Experience Israel through the Hartman Institute’s full-day tiyulim where hartman_img1we see the real Israel from different angles, in the past: military Israel, start-up nation Israel, Arab and Palestinian Israel, and Archeology and the Bible
  • Enjoy incredible community-building among the Temple Emanuel members who attend (including Rabbi Robinson in 2020). Nothing bonds like being in Israel together

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