    Solopreneurship, the practice of single-handedly starting and leading an organization, is a celebrated American entrepreneurial approach. Americans tout the notion that with hard work and hustle, any individual can tackle any challenge.

  2. What's Next Recon Today column February 2019

    By almost every measure, whether objective or subjective, our November, 2018 convention was a success. More than 730 Reconstructionists from across North America (and from Israel and the Netherlands) shared their spirit, energy and intelligence with one another in study and song, and prayer and fellowship. There were 125 learning sessions, taught by roughly 175 lay leaders, faculty members, students and rabbis from across the movement. We prayed and sang and danced and ate together.

  4. February 2019 RT Article - Evolving

    There is a vast amount of diversity across the Reconstructionist movement. This is a good thing: the embrace of diversity, the recognition that it could be vitalizing for the Jewish people and the Jewish civilization, is at the heart of a Reconstructionist approach to being Jewish. Yet there is one thing on which every Reconstructionist I encounter agrees: we all want the Reconstructionist movement to have greater visibility. We all want recognition for all our past innovations and for all the ways we continue to reconstruct Jewish life now.

  6. Invitation to Support Israelis Opposing Kahanists in Knesset

    The Israeli grassroots social action organization, Zazim – Community Action, is mobilizing Israelis to call on the Central Elections Committee of Knesset to protect the Knesset from Kahanists. Over 13,000 Israelis have already signed onto Zazim’s petition expressing their conviction that Kahanists have no place in the Knesset and represent a fundamental threat to Israel’s core democratic values.

  8. What is Social Entrepreneurship - Edgeblog

    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. The proper term for my course is social entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurship means applying a business-like discipline to creating solutions to social justice, cultural and environmental issues.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
