If Judaism can compete – morally, spiritually, intellectually, and politically – as the foundation of an identity that people will want to claim as their own, and as the catalyst for communities to which people will want to belong, the Jewish future will be secure. Great ideas, and leaders who embody them, are the twin engines leading the way to a better Jewish future.
“One of the foundations of Jewish life for over 3,000 years has been that ideas matter. Ideas shape reality, and ideas create the possibility for a bright future. We are a people who start with Torah. We are only going to have a future if we continue to produce new Torah.” – Donniel Hartman
