I’ve long been dreading making this announcement, wanting to put it off as long as possible hoping that things would change. As you know, I’ve been on hiatus, but it’s only fair that I make it official.
Jewish philanthropy, as manifested in my career, my volunteer work, my writing, and most poignantly, this blog, are my passion. It is my privilege to work on behalf of the Jewish people and the State of Israel every day of my life.
I regret to say that at present, I am no longer able to devote the immense time and energy needed to maintain this blog. It is my ardent hope that I will be able to return to continue its work, but the time is not now.
For the many of you who have written to ask about the Bronfman Big Idea Series, the series will be revived (with the permission of individual authors) when the blog returns. I apologize for any inconvenience this has incurred and assure you that I would keep blogging and writing about issues central to the Jewish world and our innovations if I had any capacity to do so at present. But I don’t.
Thank you all so warmly for your devoted support. I encourage you to stay subscribed so that you will be notified when I return.
I am available by e-mail (although with some delay) at mayan80 [at] yahoo.com.
With love and admiration,
