Abstract:

Organized Jewish communal life, the author contends, has become a closed circle. There are too few new people joining the ranks, and too few new ideas expressed. Drawing on his experience in the Jewish communal field and in private consulting, the author explores some reasons for this problem, including low pay and low perceived status for Jewish communal workers, as well as others. The author further suggests some directions for the field to explore in search of solutions.
