Join us on Thursday, December 8 at 1 p.m. EDT as Rabbi Sarah Brammer-Shlay discusses her Evolve essay, “Moving Ahead Without Leaving Anyone Behind: A Loving Strategy for Bold Leadership.” Sarah reflects upon the dilemma faced by any leader who wants to lead boldly when many are not ready to move so quickly. Her proposal resonates as a strategy for remaining in community with those with whom we disagree. She writes: “I have come to understand the term ahavat yisrael — love of the Jewish people —as being about a belief that the Jewish people always has the ability to evolve.”
