01/20/2015 - Going Beyond Professional Growth to Personal Growth - eJewish Philanthropy

When I started my first job in the Jewish community, my boss had just begun his six week summer trip to Cambodia. Instead of setting up a training or onboarding schedule for me before he left, he simply told me to “read books that will make you better, spend time with people who are smarter than you and go places where you will learn.” Morris, 83-years-old at the time, said we would work on implementing a strategy together when he returned. But I wasn’t sure what to do for the six weeks until then.

01/14/2015 - Young, Jewish and Staying in Paris - eJewish Philanthropy

Mourning and anger after tragedy. This is currently the state of mind of the Jewish community in France. We have been cowardly attacked in the heart of the Jewish life, a kosher supermarket, a few hours before Shabbat. How much more can we take? Didn’t we say the same thing after Ilan Halimi and the Jewish school shooting in Toulouse. Enough is enough! France is home to the largest Jewish population in Europe, and in 2014, we saw 7,000 French olim, the highest number of all times. I believe that 2015 will follow that trend, but even so, the Jewish population in France will remain large and we will stay strong.

Sixty-five people crammed onto couches, giant beanbags and extra chairs borrowed from the Oregon Jewish Museum. They followed Eli’s socially conscious adaptation of the Haggadah on smartphones while enjoying delicacies like gluten-free, dairy- free, avocado-based chocolate mousse and, of course, homemade gefilte fish.
