Dr. Stein Hain is the Director of Faculty and a Senior Fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, where she serves as lead faculty, directs the activities of the Kogod Research Center for Contemporary Jewish Thought and consults on the content of lay and professional leadership programs. She teaches a periodic online learning series, “Talmud from the Balcony”, and co-hosts an ongoing podcast on Israel-related topics, For Heaven’s Sake, with Yossi Klein Halevi and Donniel Hartman.
