"Insists that our community can nurture leaders for this generation and beyond; practical, grounded insights inspire hope and confidence that we need not despair of infinite and endless wandering in the midbar of modern living."
Jeff Swartz, CEO, Timberland Company

“Passionate and inspired ... takes the choicest wisdom from Jewish and business texts, and applies it to the day-to-day challenges of Jewish organizational life. Everyone in Jewish leadership—professionals, students, and volunteers—should read and master this volume.”
Jonathan D. Sarna, director, Hornstein Jewish Professional Leadership Program, Brandeis University

“Lucid, appealing, brilliant … should be required reading for those concerned with Jewish communal life today and tomorrow…. Touches the heart as well as the mind.”
Sylvia Barack Fishman, professor of contemporary Jewish life, Brandeis University; author, The Way Into the Varieties of Jewishness
