Jewish communal leaders simply must recognize the need for us (right now!) to listen and learn, honor and engage, struggle and sit with all of these issues, narratives, experiences...for our sake collectively as a Jewish people, and specifically as American Jews.Lindsey B. Mintz Executive Director, Indianapolis JCRC
Encounter is an opportunity to engage more deeply and seriously in the most pressing issues facing the Jewish people today. You need this. Not because you will emerge with solutions or talking points, but because you will break through and dive beneath the facile talk about solutions and talking points…Jon A. Levisohn Director, Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education, Brandeis University
It is a duty to listen to all the stories if you wish to have a properly functioning moral compass.Rabbi Steve Greenberg Executive Director, Eshel
I have an additional narrative in my head which I didn't have prior--that is why I knew it was necessary for me as a communal leader.Debbie Cosgrove Chair, Jewish Women’s Foundation NY
I feel much more informed, have (some) first hand understanding and a better grasp on where to go to learn more. This is now an open and discussable topic.Rabbi Tully Harcsztark Principal, SAR High School
