Dr. Elana Stein Hain is the Director of Faculty and Senior Fellow at the Shalom hartman Institute of North America. She is passionate about bringing rabbinic thought into conversation with contemporary life. To this end, she developed Talmud from the Balcony, an occasional learning seminar exposing the big ideas, questions, and issues motivating rabbinic discussions.
