There’s a revolution brewing in the Jewish world and it’s one that could keep our communities vibrant and healthy for our children and grandchildren to inherit. The revolution is simple: true networking, which means knocking down the turf walls that separate our institutions and working together for our people’s common – and most pressing — needs.
All 175 of us in attendance could see this revolution was alive and well at ADVANCE: The Ruderman Jewish Special Needs Funding Conference on November 6 in New York City. It was an amazing day of shared vision and commitment to inclusion for all those among us who live with a disability. It was also a day that inspired Andrés Spokoiny, President and CEO of the Jewish Funders Network, and myself to write this op-ed which ran last week in e Jewish Philanthropy.
I look forward to working with all of you toward this exciting and sacred goal.
