ISBN: 0029141400. Born in the United States in 1931 to parents who had immigrated from Jerusalem, Hartman studied at the Lakewood yeshiva, Yeshiva University, and Fordham University. In 1971 he emigrated to Israel, which had "religioustheological significance" to him, as he thought that Jews could only live fully as Jews in Israel and that establishing the Jewish state was "the culmination of the historic covenant at Sinai. " Hartman's entire approach to Judaism revolves around synthesizing historical traditions with the present situations of Jews. To this end he established the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, has trained teachers, worked with senior officers in the Israel Defense Forces, and continues with Jewish endeavors in Israel and internationally.
