I wanted to share with you an article that I co-authored with Lisa Budlow, which was published this morning in eJewishPhilanthropy. There has been a great deal of discussion recently about Jewish Peoplehood - what it means and how we work to continue to connect the Jewish global community. Although there has been an emphasis on education and Israel in this discussion, it is our belief that the collective work done by Jewish family service agencies with clients both Jewish and non-Jewish is, at least, as strong a reason for the perpetuation of the Jewish people and Jewish values in our world today. We hope you enjoy the article and we welcome you to share it with your board and staff as an affirmation of the good work that they do each day.
