Ne’emanut: Placing Relationships at the Center

Hosted By: Shalom Hartman Institute

How should American Jews approach their relationship with Israel? Ne’emanut is an ethical orientation proposed by Shalom Hartman Institute Scholar in Residence Mijal Bitton that emphasizes the importance of relationships – over and above ideologies – in shaping moral good. She argues that Ne’emanut should guide the commitments of American Jews to Israel.

Hartman Fellow and Jewish Currents publisher Daniel May and Hartman Rabbinic Fellow and Makom director Joseph Schwartz will respond to Bitton’s thesis and interrogate it from different political perspectives. Together, they will examine alternate approaches to understand the connections between North American Jews and Israel.

This session is based on Mijal Bitton’s article Ne’emanut: Placing Relationships at the Center in Sources: A Journal of Jewish Ideas by the Shalom Hartman Institute.
