The Jewish people face big challenges ahead. A new government in America. Another election in Israel. Building on the Abraham Accords and confronting the Iranian threat. The future of Jewish education. The post-COVID economy. The state of faith in America, Israel, and the West. Such moments require great leaders, new thinking, and enduring ideas.
