HARTMAN--David. The Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion family mourns the death of Rabbi David Hartman, academician and scholar and founder of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. Rabbi Hartman's scholarship and expertise have helped guide educational institutions, academic societies and the Israeli government to a greater understanding among Jews of diverse affiliations both in Israel and the diaspora. The Jewish world is impoverished because of his passing. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his family whose loss we share. May they find comfort together with all those who mourn for Zion and Jerusalem. Rabbi David Ellenson, President Irwin Engelman, Chairman of the Board of Governors
