The Electricity of New Ideas
Every time I think about Charles Bronfman’s Big Idea contest for Jewish communal innovation, I just can’t wait to hear what the ideas are. Great news– it’s time to talk about them!
The Official Yes
I’ve just spoken to Prof. Jonathan Sarna, Director of Brandeis’ Hornstein Program for Jewish Professional Leadership who says:
“I am absolutely delighted for there to be discussion of Jewish communal innovation on your blog and elsewhere. One of the most important contributions of this initiative, from my perspective, has been the excitement that it has generated around this important theme. Nothing in our regulations precludes such discussion. To the contrary, we welcome it!”
I Want To Hear From You
Let the games begin. I want to hear from you. If you submitted an idea to Bronfman’s contest (or if you didn’t). I want to you to feel comfortable using The New Jew: Blogging Jewish Philanthropy as a platform to be heard. Use this blog to share, think, talk about, and develop your idea with a friendly and thoughtful audience. I am at your disposal.
Please contact me by leaving a comment below or e-mailing me at mnorton [at] TheNewJew.org
Can you tell how excited I am?
(Special thanks to Prof. Sarna for his quick and kind reply.)
