Rabbi Irwin Kula, President of CLAL, delivered the closing address at the tenth annual TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) Conference. For Rabbi Kula, TED was an opportunity to explore the connections between religious traditions and a world of rapid technological, commercial and communal change. Even more importantly, it presented a challenge that has become central to CLAL: translating the particularistic language and wisdom of Jewish tradition for a wider, global audience.
