The Community is What Counts

Arnold M. Eisen, chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, shares the concern of mainline Protestantism over declines in participation. That challenge, he suggests, is best addressed by providing an opportunity for people to be part of something “larger than themselves” by forming strong communities within which individuals can find purpose, direction and joy as they search for and serve God. Eisen is considered one of the world’s pre-eminent leaders and thinkers in Conservative Judaism. Explore his thoughts on the challenges and opportunities facing Conservative Judaism in the United States by reading the question-and-answer based article “The community is what counts,” located on Faith & Leadership, an online publication of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School.
