While strolling in Jerusalem's Greek Colony I found a very reflective door for Weekend Reflections.
It is the front door of the Shalem Center think tank.
The back of the historic building bears its Hebrew name, Beit Nativ.
I learn here that next year it will house the new Shalem College.
In March 2009, Shalem submitted an application to Israel's Council for Higher Education to open Israel's first liberal arts college. Shalem College will offer the first Israeli B.A. modeled on the American liberal arts degree.
Top Israeli and overseas applicants will pursue a unique core curriculum in which the classics of Western thought are studied alongside the Bible and other Jewish sources. The College is currently scheduled to open with majors in Philosophy, Political Theory and Religion (PPR) and in Middle East and Islamic Studies.
Additional majors will be added as resources become available.
This post will be for Monday Doorways.
