Event Details

Description

Our scholar is a wonderful teacher, Dr. Elana Stein Hain, a senior scholar at the Hartman Institute. Fred has personally learned Torah with her this month while in Israel, and you will not find a better teacher and thinker.

She will lead us in three topics of deep Torah study, including considering notions of what it means to be obligated in a world defined by self as well as considering the present moment in the State of Israel, and the deep fissures and how we might frame the present challenges for our congregants. As the co-host of the podcast For Heaven’s Sake with Doniel Hartman and Yossi Klein Halevi, these questions have been front and center in her thinking in recent years. The exact topic and the schedule will be circulated at the end of the month.

Dr. Elana Stein Hain is the Rosh Beit Midrash and a Senior Fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, where she serves as lead faculty, engages in research and curriculum development, and consults on the content of lay and professional leadership programs. A widely well-regarded teacher and scholar, Elana is passionate about bringing rabbinic thought into conversation with contemporary life. To this end, she created Talmud from the Balcony, an occasional learning seminar exposing the big ideas, questions, and issues motivating rabbinic discussions. She is the author of Circumventing the Law: Rabbinic Perspectives on Legal Loopholes and Integrity (Penn Press, 2023-2024) which uses loopholes as a lens for understanding rabbinic views on law and ethics. Elana also co-hosts For Heaven’s Sake, a bi-weekly podcast with Doniel Hartman and Yossi Klein Halevi, exploring contemporary issues related to Israel and the Jewish world.

She earned her doctorate in Religion at Columbia University and is an alumna of the Yeshiva University Graduate Program in Advanced Talmudic Studies (GPATS) as well as the Consortium in Jewish Studies and Legal Theory Graduate Fellowship at Cardozo School of Law. She also served for eight years as a clergy member on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, at both Lincoln Square Synagogue and the Jewish Center, has taught at the Wagner School at NYU, and sits on the board of Sefaria: A Living Library of Jewish Texts.

Elana lives on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with her family.
