Tal Becker, Legal Adviser to the Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in a Not-To-Be-Missed Conversation about Israel and the Jewish People
Boston, Massachusetts – On November 17, The Shalom Hartman Institute hosts Tal Becker, at Temple Emanuel in Newton, MA where he will explore the role Israel plays in the spiritual, physical, and psychological development of the Jewish people today.
Becker, Legal Adviser of Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Senior Fellow at the Hartman Kogod Research Center states,
“Israel has played many different roles throughout Jewish history. In the twentieth century, Jews looked to Israel to make them whole and guarantee survival. As we come to terms with a new era of Jewish power and Jewish vulnerability, what role does Israel play in the development of the Jewish people today?”
He answers this question and more at the inaugural event for Hartman’s newly formed regional Boston office.
According to Rabbi Emily Goldberg Winer, who heads Hartman’s Boston presence, the decision to expand into this region, Hartman’s seventh in North America, came from a need for more in-depth Jewish programming and engagement in this vibrant, diverse community,
“The Boston Jewish community feels simultaneously robust and tight-knit. Movers and innovators are creating real change in our communal discourse here, and I feel so humbled to be a part of it.”
The Shalom Hartman Institute, the leading center of applied Jewish thought and education serving Israel and North America is partnering with Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) and Spark CJP to host this event.
Rabbi Marc Baker, President, and CEO, CJP shared:
“We are excited to partner with the Shalom Hartman Institute as we invest in a deeply engaged Jewish community and a vibrant, creative, Jewish future. Together, we will inspire courageous leaders who find meaning and strength in the relevance and depth of our Jewish tradition; and we will ensure that dynamic Jewish ideas empower our diverse, passionate community to co-create our future and to wrestle with the most pressing issues of our time - including Jewish Peoplehood, Zionism, democracy, and pluralism.”
Thursday’s inaugural event marks the Institute’s long-lasting commitment to the Boston community to engage in in-depth learning across a variety of settings and modalities.
