How are Israelis grappling with the horrors of October 7 and its aftermath?  What sources are they turning to for perspective, solace, and inspiration? Over ten days, a minyan of Hartman faculty will teach Jewish sources about loss, resilience, hope, and grief that illuminate their personal experiences during this unprecedented moment in Jewish history. 

Join us for Voices from Israel, a lunchtime series, as we learn daily with a teacher from Israel and hear the Torah anchoring them now. All classes will be held from 12:00-12:45 pm ET.
