The Shalom Hartman Institute is a leading center of Jewish thought and education, serving Israel and North America. Its mission is to strengthen Jewish peoplehood, identity, and pluralism; to enhance the Jewish and democratic character of Israel; and to ensure that Judaism is a compelling force for good in the 21st century.

Work in the Bay Area focuses on increasing Jewish lay and professional leaders’ capacities to lead their organizations towards cultivating rich and meaningful approaches to Judaism. Programs include local lectures and conferences offering opportunities to explore the current challenges facing North American Jewish communities today, as well as summer leadership programs in Israel for both rabbis and Jewish community leaders.
