The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles has awarded three L.A. rabbis the chance to participate in a prestigious three-year fellowship with the Shalom Hartman Institute in Israel. Rabbis Denise Eger (Congregation Kol Ami), Stewart Vogel (Temple Aliyah) and Ken Chasen (Leo Baeck Temple) have been selected to participate in the Hartman’s Rabbinic Leadership Initiative beginning this summer. The Hartman Institute — widely regarded as one of the most distinguished liberal-minded academic centers in Israel — has developed a continuing education program for rabbis, which includes on-site study and online distance learning. Past awardees of the fellowship include Rabbis Ed Feinstein (Valley Beth Shalom), Laura Geller (Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills), Eli Herscher (Stephen S. Wise Temple), Michelle Missaghieh (Temple Israel of Hollywood) and Mark Diamond (Board of Rabbis).
