A Campaign, Not a Convention

For the past fourteen months, I have devoted every day to creating and executing a programmatic vision for the USCJ Convention, the largest gathering of Conservative Jews in the world.   The programmatic vision is based on my belief that what Conservative Judaism has needed for over a generation is a campaign, not a convention, to mobilize people towards transformative change.  This afternoon, I had a thought-piece published in the Forward about how to fix Conservative Judaism’s brand problem as we begin to launch the USCJ Convention this weekend.  You can read the piece by clicking on this link.

Ruskay Fellowship

This past week, I was honored to be named an inaugural fellow for the Ruskay Institute for Jewish Professional Leadership by the UJA-Federation of New York.   In this program, I will learn with a cohort of new professionals in local and national Jewish organizations in the New York area on how to continually develop our skills and core competencies as Jewish professionals.  You can learn more about the inaugural class of fellows by clicking on this link.
