Enabling Jewish Professionals

An opinion piece from the Forward:

Give Professionals Time To Dream

More often than not, young professionals in the non-profit world “do” what they “are.” In the Jewish communal world, this is constantly evident: The professionals who work in our communities also pray in our communities, socialize in our communities and volunteer in our communities.

They are the personification of the sense of community that we aspire to have felt by Jews throughout our community. But among this group of the Jewish community’s most dedicated, there is a serious problem that ought to cause alarm among the rest of us: Far too many young Jewish professionals are frustrated about their ability to make a difference.
