  6. Seth leadership column May 2018

    Part of my “elevator speech” answer to the question “What is Reconstructionist Judaism?” has been the familiar, almost catchphrase: “Reconstructionists believe that Judaism is the evolving civilization of the Jewish people.” On a really short elevator ride, that could be the entire speech, leaving the person who asked the question slightly puzzled and really no better informed than they were when we left the lobby.

    I teach rabbinical students to be entrepreneurs. Often, people respond, “Really, you teach rabbis how to make money?” Feigning patience, I explain that tackling the finances of any project is critical, but the tools I teach rabbis help them rack up solutions that impact the quality of people’s lives, not the big bucks.
