Third Commonwealth Prize
Wednesday, May 25
KI’s Third Commonwealth Prize honors a significant change-agent for the Jewish People. This year we are pleased to honor Rabbi Donniel Hartman, President of Jerusalem’s Shalom Hartman Institute for the peerless work that the Institute has done to strengthen bicontinental bonds between Israeli and North American Jewry. Their noteworthy efforts continue to make the common project of Israeli and North American Jewry into a more shared project. Michael Sandel will help present the Prize on Wednesday, May 25 at a KI Dinner which will be followed by a community-wide event that will be hosted at Newton’s Temple Emanuel. Please email us if you are interested in details.
