  1. Marriage Equality and Religious Freedom

    On a recent evening in Scarsdale, N.Y., I was at the Mid-Westchester JCC, speaking on a panel to a packed and spirited room. We’d been invited to discuss marriage equality and Jewish values, and the tone was certainly celebratory. We acknowledged we have farther to go, but in light of the Supreme Court’s decision last year on gay marriage, we’ve certainly come a long way.

  6. Kotel release Feb 2016

    The Reconstructionist movement is overjoyed that on Jan 31, 2016, the Israeli cabinet voted to dramatically expand the space for egalitarian prayer at the Kotel. This is a blessed and welcome decision. The Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City is a central and highly symbolic Jewish space. For many Jews, this is an historic moment, because an egalitarian community of men and women is essential to their religious obligations, needs and desires.

  7. No Success Without Learning to Fail

    “Fail Forward” is the mantra of entrepreneurs. Take risks. You will fail, guaranteed. Learn from it.  Once a little smarter, boldly launch again. Instead of meeting failure with crimson shame and pink slips, entrepreneurs believe, as Robert Kennedy did, “to achieve greatness, you have to fail greatly.”

    David Bryfman, Chief Innovation Officer at The Jewish Education Project, introduced the concept of “fail forward” at a Jewish Futures Conference in New York City.

  9. How Might We Learn Sustainability from "Hot Dudes Reading?"

    Before running off to work with a high net-worth client, Jeremy Nowak pauses to offer me, his next door neighbor, some free advice. I ask how startups in the Jewish community can achieve financial sustainability. We need to think anew since traditional pay to stay membership rests in a casket, and no-cost internet access to knowledge and experience is thriving. He invites me to sit on his porch. These kinds of changes have affected a wide range of industries, from newspapers to religion, he explains.

  10. PJI: Hope and the New Zionism

    Israel’s Declaration of Independence, read and signed on the evening of May 14, 1948, begins with the story of Jewish persecution and homelessness. Then it proclaims the principles on which the country will be established.
