post pubblicato in People of Zion, il 15 dicembre 2006

Just how does one take a ‘balanced position’ between those who have waged a 60 year war of extermination and those who have tried to defend themselves against it?

Come ho perso ogni speranza nei palestinesi
post pubblicato in People of Zion, il 20 luglio 2006

Non vi sarebbero rapimenti, bombardamenti e ammazzamenti, oggi, se i palestinesi non avessero accolto l’uscita di civili e soldati israeliani dalla striscia di Gaza con un aumento dei lanci di missili e razzi contro la popolazione israeliana.

Heart of Many Rooms: Celebrating the Many Voices within Judaism
post pubblicato in People of Zion, il 13 novembre 2005

This work is not addressed only to scholars of Judaism or theologians, but also, and primarily, to all Jews and non-Jews who would like to share the thoughts and struggles of a person who loves Torah and Halakhah, who is committed to helping make room for and celebrate the religious and cultural diversity present in the modern world, and who believes that a commitment to Israel and to Jewish particularity must be organically connected to the rabbinic teaching, ‘Beloved are all human beings created in the image of God.’”
—from the Introduction

With clarity, passion, and outstanding scholarship, David Hartman addresses the spiritual and theological questions that face all Jews and all people today. From the perspective of traditional Judaism, he helps us understand the varieties of twentieth-century Jewish practice and shows that commitment to both Jewish tradition and to pluralism can create bridges of understanding between people of different religious convictions.

“This is a book that ought to be read by everyone who is seriously interested in Judaism, or, for that matter, in what it means to be a religious person in a pluralistic age.”
—Hilary Putnam, Cogan University Professor, Harvard University

“This is not just a book for Jews.... Hartman stands in the tradition of Abraham Joshua Heschel as a Jew who can speak to both his own people and to others with equal clarity.”
—Harvey Cox, Professor of Divinity, Harvard University; author of Fire from Heaven

“An extraordinary book, steeped in tradition, devoid of stereotypic thinking; lucid and pertinent, a modern classic.”
—Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, author of For Those Who Can't Believe

“Will prove indispensable to anyone interested in modern religious and social thought.”
—American Library Association’s Booklist

“In A Heart of Many Rooms David Hartman has given us that rarest of phenomena, an internal Jewish dialogue between the voices of tradition and modernity, Orthodoxy and Reform, religion and secularity, skepticism and faith. Thoughtful, provocative, imaginative in its reach, generous in its embrace, this is a work to challenge and enlarge us all.”
—Professor Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of Britain and the Commonwealth

Dr. David Hartman is one of the most respected Jewish theologians in the world today. He is the founder and director of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. Named after his late father, the Institute is dedicated to developing a new understanding of classical Judaism that provides moral and spiritual direction for Judaism’s confrontation with modernity. Presently Professor Emeritus at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Hartman received his rabbinic ordination from Yeshiva University’s Theological Seminary in New York. A frequent lecturer in the United States, he is the author of several widely-acclaimed books, including Love and Terror in the God Encounter: The Theological Legacy of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, (Jewish Lights); Israelis and the Jewish Tradition (Yale); and two winners of the National Jewish Book Award, including A Living Covenant: The Innovative Spirit in Traditional Judaism (Jewish Lights).

Vatican offers swap deal to regain Site of Last Supper
THE Vatican is hoping to regain control of the Room of the Last Supper in Jerusalem, one of the most sacred sites in Christianity. It will, in exchange, hand over to the Jewish community the historic synagogue at Toledo in Spain, at present a Catholic church. The proposals, contained in a draft agreement between the Israeli Government and the Vatican, come on the eve of a state visit to the Vatican next month by President Katzav. Final details on a long-delayed accord on the status of Roman Catholic properties in the Holy Land are expected to be agreed during the visit, marking a new era of reconciliation between Christians and Jews after centuries of hostility. The Upper Room, where the Last Supper is said to have taken place, is held by Christians to be the place where Jesus broke bread and drank wine with the disciples on the eve of his Crucifixion and also where the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples at Pentecost. The Last Supper has become an iconic Christian image, painted most famously by Leonardo. The Room of the Last Supper is the fourth most holy place in Christendom after the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, built over Christ’s tomb, the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth, where the Virgin Mary was told by an angel she was to give birth, and the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem, where the birth took place. The present Gothic-arched room is not the original but was built by the Crusaders in the 14th century. It was taken over in 1342 by the Franciscans, the Catholic custodians of Christian sites in the Holy Land. Along with the rest of Jerusalem, it fell to the Ottoman Turks in the 16th century and was transformed into a mosque, whose Arabic inscriptions are still visible. Since the foundation of Israel the area has served as the site of Jewish yeshivas, or religious schools, since Jews believe that the Tomb of King David lies beneath the spot. Il Messaggero, the Rome daily, said possible reciprocal gestures include the return to Jewish control of the 12th-century synagogue in Toledo, which, after the suppression of Judaism in Spain in the 15th century, became the Church of Santa María La Blanca.
