On May 19 in e-JewishPhilanthropy, Jewish Funders Network president and CEO Andrés Spokoiny cited the urgent need for philanthropic support for “the thinkers, philosophers and theologians among us.” Disinvestment, he says, has left the Jewish community “woefully unprepared to conduct the deep ideological conversations we need.”
There is hope, however, as some are having those conversations, including Moment: “Notable among them are the new journal of the Shalom Hartman Institute and Sapir, the journal of ideas published by the Maimonides Foundation. Other organizations, like Hadar, are also producing insightful and deep materials. Moment Magazine’s symposia are also remarkable.”
In addition, because of our latest Big Question Project, “How do you Define Community in the 21st Century?”, Nadine was asked to give the keynote address on the subject at the June meeting of the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
