"Alma offers Hebrew Cultural studies and a new way of addressing the topic of Jewish-Israeli identity. We invite the community; groups, companies and organizations for a unique study experience, day-long seminars, tours and events for special dates on the Jewish calendar.
Studies can address a wide range of issues relating to the broad offerings of Hebrew and Jewish culture. Topics can include: Bible, Mishnah, Talmud, Jewish mysticism (including Kabbalah and Hassidic texts), liturgical poetry, Jewish Philosophy (from the Middle Ages to the present) and modern Literature – Jewish, Hebrew, as well as Israeli. Interwoven into Alma’s study programs are key aspects of World Culture – Literature, History, Philosophy and History of the Arts.
Alma defines Hebrew Culture as the meeting point between Jewish culture, Israeli culture and general culture.
"...The culture in the land of Israel uses all our old vessels, which are still intact and capable to contain the precious liquid. But we are also creating new vessels..."
In this view, the term "culture" is wide and comprehensive, and is based on the great books of our own culture as well as the culture of the broader world.
