Big Idea Series: Announcing Phase Two!

Phase Two Begins!

I am thrilled to announce a new phase of the Big Idea Series. Thanks to Prof. Jonathan Sarna, Chair of the Bronfman-Brandeis Contest, I was able to invite all contest participants who wanted to bring more publicity and discussion to their proposals to republish them in The New Jew: Blogging Jewish Philanthropy. Over 65 proposals were submitted!

Series Publication Begins

Series publication will begin the first week of April. All authors will be contacted beforehand with their proposed publishing schedules. If you still want to apply, this Thursday (March 21st) is your last day to do so.

Once the series gets fully underway, I will add a tab to the top navigation bar for easier movement between proposals and categories. This will also help integrate Phases One and Two of the Big Idea Series.

Thematic Organization

In Phase Two of the Big Idea Series, proposals will be organized by theme and category in order to optimize their impact and develop thinking and conversations among ideas and readers.

As always, your thoughts and reactions are the key to making this series work. I can’t wait to hear what you think.

Comment Moderation

Please note that due to previous issues, the series will be heavily moderated to ensure relevant and healthy conversation. My big goal is to promote innovation and give breath to fresh ideas in the Jewish community– we can only do this by talking with and learning from each other. I hope this series provides a strong conduit for idea generation.

Personal Note

On a personal note, thank you to all who have e-mailed me with warm wishes for a full and quick recovery. I am still quite sick– and as you can see this is a major project (which I am so proud to facilitate)– but all regular blogging is still suspended until I am better. Your continued support is immeasurably appreciated.

Hag Purim Sameach!
