Facts Are Not Enough

This Shavuot, we need to recommit ourselves to telling our story, to constructing a worldview of meaning and transcendence that can redefine what synagogues mean in the twenty-first century.  Yes, if our synagogues and institutions were lost to the world, we would lose so much, yet unless we can inspire others as to why the big picture matters, no facts will move others towards action.

Today, The Times of Israel published a post I wrote in preparation for Shavuot on the necessity of narrative, rather than facts, to transform our institutions.  You can read the post by clicking on this link.
